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
91-93/100 Vinous, Neal Martin
"The 2017 Volnay Clos de la Barre 1er Cru (where half the vineyard was planted in 2011) has a perfumed, generous bouquet of ample ripe red cherries, wild strawberry and subtle brine-like aromas that are very well defined. The palate is ripe and fleshy on the entry, offering good depth and flesh, with layers of raspberry coulis, crushed strawberry, fig and white pepper toward the ample, persistent finish. Superb."

90-92 Allen Meadows, Burghound
"This too is aromatically comprised only by notes of reduction and wood toast today. Otherwise there is even better concentration to the luscious middle weight flavors that exhibit outstanding intensity to the powerful, serious and impressively long finish. As Clos de la Barre usually is, this is more of a bad boy Pommard than a Volnay of lace and grace. Extended patience advised." Drink 2032+
94/100 Wine Enthusiast
"This rich, dense wine comes from a vineyard that is wholly owned by this producer. The tannins and the solid red fruits are coming together to give a wine that is opulent and will be ready to drink from 2024."
