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
91-94/100 Vinous, Neal Martin
"The 2017 Puligny-Montrachet Clos de la Garenne 1er Cru comes from 90-year-old vines. It has to shake off a touch of reduction at first, gradually opening to reveal scents of green apple, pear, orange zest and just a hint of white chocolate. The palate is well balanced with fine salinity on the entry. I admire the energy given off by this nascent Puligny. Very harmonious toward the finish, with superb salinity on the aftertaste. Excellent. (DIAM GC closure)." Drink 2021 - 2038
91-93/100 and Sweet Spot Outstanding, Burghound, Allen Meadows
"A cooler and more reserved nose offers up beautifully elegant aromas of green fruit, mineral reduction and plenty of floral and citrus elements. The racy, intense and tension-filled middle weight flavors are more refined though less seductive while displaying very fine length on the almost delicate finale. Textbook." Drink 2025+
16.5/20 Jancis Robinson
"Cask sample. Floral, tight nose suggests potential longevity. Leaner than most, with herbal notes. Quite refined, lots to chew on." Drink 2021 - 2026
