Louis Jadot, Burgundy

Saturday, September 1st, 2007

Maison Louis Jadot is a négociant house, but also the owner of a considerable domaine of more than 101 acres – huge by burgundian standards. It is now owned by the Koch family (which also owns the American importer Kobrand), but for nearly 40 years Jadot has been run by the Gagey family, currently represented by Pierre-Henry Gagey.

The whites are made from chardonnay grapes. They are firmer and, when young, more acidic than many burgundies, but these characteristics allow them to age well.

Rich reds from pinot noir are the hallmark of the firm, whether from domaine vineyards such as Chambertin Clos de Bèze or Chambertin Clos Saint-Jacques, or from its negociant wines.
