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
92-94/100 Parker's Wine Advocate, Neal Martin
"The 2016 Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru Les Fuées has the best bouquet from Jadot among the premier cru Chambolles, with crisp red cherry and raspberry notes soaked in minerals and smoke, an achievement considering the vineyard was impacted by frost. The palate is medium-bodied with supple, ripe tannin, crisp acidity and a lithe, sensual, silky smooth finish. Bravo." Drink 2021 - 2040
91-93/100 and 'Sweet Spot/Outstanding' in Burghound, Allen Meadows
"There is plenty of wood/menthol influence to the notably more elegant nose that exhibits notes of plum, dark currant, orange pekoe tea and ample spice wisps. The rich and mouth coating flavors are finer and much more mineral-driven with a lovely sense of underlying tension adding lift to the beautifully persistent and complex finale where a touch of pit fruit bitterness appears. This is really lovely stuff and very Fuées in character." Drink 2028+
91-93/100 Vinous, Stephen Tanzer
"(the crop was down 50% from normal): Good dark red. Reduced aromas of musky dark berries, herbs and crushed stone. Surprisingly creamy and thick on entry, then less showy but larger-scaled in the middle palate than the Baudes. More about salty minerality and soil tones than fresh fruit in the early going, this wine conveys a cooler, even somewhat austere character. Finishes with rather muscular tannins that reminded me of Bonnes-Mares. This 2016 will require extended cellaring."
