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
95/100 Wine Enthusiast
"This wine is structured, with dark tannins and bold fruits coming together in harmony. The wine's density is impressive, driven by the black fruits as much as by the tannins. It has a generous texture while needing to age." Drink 2025+
90-93 /100 Burghound, Allen Meadows
"Soft wood frames ripe and fresh aromas of red and dark pinot fruit, pungent earth and evident sauvage and forest floor notes. The sleek, intense and overtly mineral-inflected large-scaled flavors are classic Cazetiers in that they're powerful and muscular, all wrapped in a rustic and very serious finish. Patience once again absolutely advised." Drink 2032+
90-92/100 Vinous, Neal Martin
"The 2017 Gevrey-Chambertin Les Cazetiers 1er Cru is a serious leap up in quality from the Les Poissenots. The bouquet features lovely pure red berry fruit laced with minerals and wilted flowers. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, smooth texture and a fine bead of acidity. There is still some oak to be assimilated toward the finish, but this should drink well for at least a dozen years once bottled." Drink 2021 - 2036
