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
Vinous, Neal Martin
"The 2017 Bourgogne Couvent des Jacobins, which contains a large majority of fruit from the Côte d’Or, has a pleasant, tropical-tinged bouquet featuring notes of passion fruit and guava. The palate is well balanced with good weight, a fine bead of acidity, an easygoing personality and a touch of sour lemon perking up the finish. Enjoy over the next two or three years." Drink 2018 - 2021
Parker's Wine Advocate, William Kelly
"The 2017 Bourgogne Blanc Couvent des Jacobins (Maison Louis Jadot) offers up an attractive bouquet of ripe citrus, green apple and pear, deftly framed by oak vanillin, followed by a medium-bodied, succulent and elegantly textural palate. It's a serious Bourgogne that exemplifies the effort Jadot devotes to their lesser appellations." Drink 2018 - 2024
