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.

Chassagne-Montrachet is one of the five villages of the Côte de Blancs. Premier Cru vineyards face east and southeast, and the Chardonnay grapes are grown in soils of brown clay and limestone. Abbaye de Morgeot is situated in the south of the commune, in the area of an old abbey. The wine is fermented in oak barrels, and then matured in barrel for 12 to 15 months before bottling. Full-bodied and rich, this wine develops aromas of white fruit, white flowers and honey. It will develop for 10 to 15 years in the bottle. Pair with rich meals, such as foie gras, fish or pasta in cream sauce and white meats in sauce.

One of the standouts of the range is the 2020 Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Abbaye de Morgeot (Domaine Louis Jadot), a medium to full-bodied, layered and seamless wine evocative of pear, orange oil and pastry cream. Bright and chalky, it's beautifully balanced and built to age. 92-94

There is outstanding concentration to the very rich and seductively textured yet powerful larger-scaled flavors that coat the palate with dry extract on the balanced, complex and impressively long finale.I very much like the depth and persistence.
