MAISON LOUIS JADOT : a Burgundy symbol

It all began in 1826 when the Jadot family bought the famous Clos des Ursules, which is now a Beaune Premier Cru vineyard. 130 years later, in 1959, Louis Henry Denis Jadot founded the négociant house that still bears his name. These days, there are two men at the helm who have been breathing new life into this great historical name for the past ten years: Pierre-Henry Gagey and Frédéric Barnier, the director and winemaker respectively.

Today, Maison Louis Jadot vineyards are spread across 240 hectares throughout Burgundy, the Côte d’Or, the Mâconnais and even Beaujolais. Over 150 cuvées in total. In order to better understand the scope of one of the finest négociant houses in Beaune, you must realize that it is faster to list the Grands Crus that they do not make rather than the opposite! 

These Crus are the stuff of dreams: Corton Charlemagne, Chevalier Montrachet Les Demoiselles, Musigny, Chambolle-Musigny Les Amoureuses, Chambertin Clos de Bèze, Échézeaux, Clos Vougeot, Corton Grèves … all among the finest wines on the planet! Even the more modest wines are not overlooked; they receive the same level of attention. In fact, this explains the existence of a single label, with the head of Bacchus, the winery’s signature and a symbol of the same commitment to quality and respect for the terroir!
