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
89-91+/100 Parker's Wine Advocate, William Kelley
"The 2017 Beaune 1er Cru Grèves (Domaine Gagey) exhibits aromas of smoky plums, red berries, forest floor and grilled squab. On the palate, it's medium-bodied, with a tensile, tangy profile, its bright core of fruit only partially concealing its youthfully chewy tannins. Structurally, it's typical Grèves and will require a bit of bottle age before revealing its quality. -- Jadot's Frédéric Barnier is pleased with his 2017 portfolio. It's a good white vintage, he says, neither over nor underripe, and in some instances—as is the norm at this address—malolactic fermentation was blocked to retain additional freshness."
89-91/100 Burghound, Allen Meadows
"Here the nose is similar to that of the Bressandes but with a bit more spice elements in evidence. There is slightly better vibrancy to the equally rich and opulent flavors that also coat the palate with dry extract before culminating in a sappy and nicely lingering finish. Note that this could easily be enjoyed shortly after release." Drink 2022+
