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 Chassagne-Montrachet Morgeot Clos de la Chapelle – a monopole of the domaine, released as usual under the Duc de Magenta label – has an attractive white peach and white-chocolate-tinged bouquet that gains intensity with aeration, displaying impressive definition and vigor. The palate is very well balanced with a fine line of acidity, more complex than the Abbaye de Morgeot and more nuanced toward the poised, mineral-driven finish. The slight nuttiness on the aftertaste completes a very impressive Chassagne. (DIAM GC closure)" Drink 2022 - 2034
92-94/100 Parker's Wine Advocate, William Kelley
"The 2017 Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Abbaye de Morgeot (Domaine Louis Jadot) unfurls in the glass with aromas of tart pear, green apple, honeycomb, spices and fresh peach. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, deep and dense, with succulent acids, chewy extract and a long, saline finish. This is well worth seeking out. -- 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."

"Monopole. Cask sample. Sweet nose of crème pâtissière. Rather opulent and fulsome. Verging on grand cru weight. For those looking for a grand cru experience at a premier cru price, this could be a good bet. Quite long, and fresher than the Bâtard." Drink 2020 - 2027
