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 Vinous, Neal Martin
"The 2017 Beaune Les Theurons 1er Cru has a fleshy, ripe red cherry, raspberry and light tea leaf bouquet that unfurls nicely in the glass. The palate is showing a little more oak than its Beaune peers at the moment, although there is more substance and a touch more complexity, hints of black pepper and a tang of marmalade popping up on the finish. Excellent." Drink 2020 - 2030
90-92/100 Burghound, Allen Meadows
"A more reserved and less obviously wooded nose reflects notes of essence of red currant, warm earth and clove nuances. The slightly finer middle weight flavors possess an attractive mid-palate texture that contrasts somewhat with the muscular finish that immediately tightens up. This is firm though not quite so much as the Grèves and a decade in a cool cellar should see this well-made effort at its best." Drink 2027+
99-91/100 Parker's Wine Advocate, William Kelley
"This was a strong showing for the 2017 Beaune 1er Cru Les Theurons (Domaine des Héritiers Jadot), a wine that offers up an attractive bouquet of plums, pomegranate, candied peel and spices. On the palate, it's medium-bodied, ample and generous, with a charming, open-knit profile and juicy balancing acids. -- 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."
