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 Parker's Wine Advocate, William Kelley
"From a 1.2-hectare parcel that reliably produces one of Jadot's very finest reds, the 2017 Corton-Pougets Grand Cru (Domaine des Héritiers Jadot) unfurls in the glass with aromas of sweet red berries, forest floor, dried flowers and smoky new oak. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, beautifully satiny and layered, with impressive concentration and depth at the core, integrated tannins and a long, expansive finish. This is a terrific Corton Pougets that 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."
90-93/100 Burghound, Allen Meadows
"The pure, pretty and restrained aromas of essence of wild red currant are redolent with plenty of the classic earth and sauvage characters of a classic Corton that are set off by prominent wood and menthol. There is a beguiling freshness and sense of energy to the focused and sleekly muscular medium-bodied flavors that possess an almost pungent minerality on the tight and grippy finish that will need time to resolve. I particularly like the excellent complexity and the fine balance should enable this to age effortlessly." Drink 2029+
90-92/100 Vinous, Neal Martin
"The 2017 Corton-Pougets Grand Cru has a very well-defined, fresh, complex bouquet of cranberry leaf, freshly tilled loam and wet limestone. The palate is medium-bodied with sappy red berry fruit and good grip, a little stocky, like the Corton-Grèves, but with a touch of precision. Perhaps this will be the pick of Jadot’s Corton Grand Crus." Drink 2022 - 2038
