Brand Louis Jadot

Founded in 1859, by Louis Henry Denis Jadot, he was the first of his family to arrive in Beaune from Belgium in 1794 and soon began purchasing Premier and Grand Cru vineyards in Burgundy. With grape growing a part of his heritage, Louis Henry set about gaining experience first in the cellars, in the evaluation of wines, and then in the vineyards, in the study of viticulture. The house of Louis Jadot has grown through a long-term policy of acquisition or management of exceptional vineyard lands and currently owns 528 acres of vineyards, including nearly 280 acres of the Cote d’Or’s most prestigious Premier and Grand Cru plots. 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.

The commune of Savigny-lès-Beaune is in the north of the Côte de Beaune and produces 90% red wines. La Dominode has an eastern exposure and lies at the southern end of the commune on gravel soils that produce elegant wine. The Pinot Noir grapes are fermented in vats for up to 4 weeks, and then the wine is matured in oak barrels for 12 to 15 months before bottling. Bright red berry aromas and flavors lead this vivacious wine. It will develop in the bottle for 7 to 10 years. This versatile red wine will pair well with light red or white meat dishes and fowl. The more mature wine will complement highly flavored sauces and aged French cheeses and charcuterie.

The 2020 Savigny-lès-Beaune 1er Cru La Dominode (Domaine Louis Jadot) is excellent, offering up aromas of raspberries and plums mingled with sweet spices, woodsmoke and raw cocoa. Medium to full-bodied, velvety and concentrated, with lively acids and a long, penetrating finish, it's seamless and complete. It's another fine rendition of a cuvée that's regularly among the domaine's high points. 92-94

The 2020 Savigny-lès-Beaune La Dominode 1er Cru has a precise, tertiary bouquet with blackberry and briary scents, just a touch of dry tobacco. The palate is medium-bodied with crunchy red fruit, hints of bell pepper emanating from the whole bunch, leading to a classically-styled, saline Pinot. 90-92
