In Burgundy’s Côte d’Or, where the integrity of the producer is often more important than a renowned appellation or vineyard, Maison Louis Jadot is one of the most venerable, most trusted and revered wine houses. Jadot’s winemaking team, now led by Technical Director Frédéric Barnier, has maintained a balance of tradition and technology in winemaking that allows Jadot’s wines to express the subtle differences between terroirs that are the essence of fine Burgundy. Though officially retired in 2013, esteemed winemaker Jacques Lardière continues to work in an advisory role and on special projects. Founded in 1859, the house has grown through a long-term policy of acquisition or management of exceptional vineyard lands and owns 528 acres of vineyards, including nearly 280 acres of the Cote d’Or’s most prestigious Premier and Grand Cru plots.
What The Critics Say
91-93/100 Neal Martin, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
"The 2016 Beaune 1er Cru Clos des Ursules has a refined bouquet, probably the most mineral driven of the three Beaune premier crus under the "Domaine des Héritiers Jadot" label. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, an insistent grip in the mouth, more black fruit surfacing toward the structured, saline, marine-influenced finish. Excellent." Drink 2020 - 2035
89-92/100 Vinous, Stephen Tanzer
"Good dark red. Aromas of cherry and flowers are complemented by a hint of mocha. Plusher in texture than the Bressandes but also with good reserve to its flavors of dark cherry and menthol. Turns more imploded and medicinal on the back half, ultimately finishing with a firm tannic spine. This solidly structured wine is a bit less sweet and floral than the Bressandes and more dominated by soil tones in the early going."
89-91/100 Burghound, Allen Meadows
"Much more discreet though not invisible wood is present on the essence of red cherry, plum and earth-inflected aromas. Once again there is fine mid-palate density to the sappy and extract-rich medium-bodied flavors that possess a taut muscularity that really comes up on the robust and very firm finish that is a bit chewy if not actually tough. While I doubt that this will ultimately be as refined as it usually is with age, it should still be very good and possibly even excellent." Drink 2028+
