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 and Sweet Spot Outstanding in Burghound, Allen Meadows
"Pungent aromas of strong petrol and wood toast largely bury the otherwise softly exotic aromas of passion fruit and white peach. There is a lovely sense of vibrancy to the highly seductive if not especially dense middle weight flavors that exude a subtle minerality on the lingering finish that tightens up rapidly as it sits on the palate. This is still coming together but it appears as though it will blossom in time."
91-93+/100 Parker's Wine Advocate, William Kelley
"Aromas of fresh peach, white flowers and buttered citrus preface the 2018 Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Les Folatières (Domaine des Héritiers Jadot), a medium to full-bodied, ample and fleshy wine that's rounded but incisive, with a nicely defined finish."
91-93/100 Vinous, Neal Martin
"The 2018 Puligny-Montrachet Les Folatières 1er Cru sports a subtle reduction on the nose, or at least it did at the moment when I tasted it from barrel, though there seems to be plenty of fruit concentration underneath it. The palate is quite rich and concentrated on the entry, showing touches of mint and orange zest; later, tangerine and grapefruit notes join the chorus line. The Clos de la Garrenne has a tad more complexity on the finish, but this is still very promising." Drink 2022 - 2038
