The Maison Louis Jadot is a family-run winery that has been producing and marketing wines in Burgundy since 1859. It controls more than 250 hectares and produces only wines with AOC-status (Appellation d'Origine Contrôlée).
It was founded by Louis Henry Denis Jadot in 1859. Already in 1826, the Jadot family bought the Beaune vineyard in the Premier Cru Clos des Ursules. In 1859, Louis Henry shaped the company and began to develop a trade in wine products to the markets of Northern Europe, where the wines produced in Burgundy were well known. Today, the House manages its own vineyards and buys grapes from other winemakers in the area. In 1996, working with Tonnellerie Vicard, Louis Jadot created the cooperative Cadus to produce French oak barrels following the Burgundy tradition.
Burgundy is the centre and the solid base of the Louis Jadot winery and, thanks to its terroir and geographical characteristics, it produces great wines, now known all over the world. Almost 200 years later, still, today, the Maison has real maniacal attention to the preservation of the wine heritage and territory of Burgundy. Each vineyard is destined to produce unique wines. All procedures have a single purpose which is the harvest: it is carried out on different dates according to the variety of grape and the wine that will be produced. The choice of bunches is the most important part of the production: only healthy grapes at the right point of ripeness can be used for the production of high-quality wines. The size of the grape varieties is also fundamental because it affects the bearing of the vine trunk which, in turn, favours the flow of the sap, which is decisive for the yield. The pruning procedure is also very careful and the pruned branches are extracted from the strands of the pergola and used as compost for the soil. On the grafted vines, below the grafting point, the small branches that grow are removed to avoid removing important nutrients from the grapes. Delicate processes are also carried out to weed some areas, paying maniacal attention to the conservation of the soil minerality.
Currently, Maison Louis Jadot produces wines in many regions with a designation of origin. Talking about all the wines produced is a difficult undertaking. The advice is to visit the site where you can find over 200 labels including white, red and rosé. At the very least, we list the production regions, not by importance, but simply in alphabetical order:
