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.

Jadot produces this glorious white wine in partnership with the Duc de Magenta family through a long-time arrangement. This plot of chardonnay vines is quite old, producing small harvests of exceptional quality. The wine is vinified traditionally with natural yeasts, partial malolactic, and long aging in barrels, 1/3 new oak. It reflects classic Puligny characteristics, bright floral aromas tinged with lemon curd and damp earth. The texture is expansive, silky and elegant with subtle acidity lifting the very long finish. This wine pairs particularly well with shellfish and salmon, also excellent with white meats, medium-aged cheeses and charcuterie.

Passerillage-inflected aromas of orange oil, peach, barley sugar, apricot and freshly baked bread preface the 2020 Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Clos de la Garenne (Duc de Magenta), a medium to full-bodied, deep and fleshy wine that's ample and enveloping, with lively acids and a long, saline finish. 92-94

The 2020 Puligny-Montrachet Clos de la Garenne 1er Cru has quite a reserved bouquet, well defined, but stricter than the other Puligny '20s from Jadot. The palate is well defined with a fine bead of acidity, cohesive with good weight, although the finish requires a little more tension and mineralité. 89-91
