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 Vinous, Neal Martin
"The 2017 Chambolle-Musigny Les Baudes 1er Cru has an airy, well-defined, transparent bouquet that is more feminine and refined than the Les Sentiers. The palate of sappy red fruit is medium-bodied and harmonious, offering fine acidity and ample red currant and cranberry fruit toward the finish. This is one of the best Premier Crus that I tasted from Jadot this vintage." Drink 2022 - 2042
91-93/100 Parker's Wine Advocate, William Kelley
"The 2017 Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru Les Baudes (Domaine Gagey) opens in the glass with a youthfully reticent bouquet of red cherries, raspberries, licorice and spices. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, fleshy and nicely concentrated, with good depth at the core underpinned by juicy acids and fine, chalky tannin. This is typically one of the finest premiers crus in the Jadot range, and this year's rendition is no exception. -- 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. " Drink 2028+
17/20 Jancis Robinson
"Cask sample. Rich, sweet nose. Crystallised cherries this time. With some real depth. Massive breadth of fruit on the end. This may not be the subtlest 2017 red burgundy but I don't think anyone will be disappointed. Quite massive for burgundy." Drink 2023 - 2035
