Louis Jadot is practically synonymous with Burgundy, particularly within the Maconnais. And you’d be forgiven given the raw number of wines they produce each year for thinking that they were just a huge corporate negociant. But the fact is that they have one of the most impressive collection of vineyard holdings in the country – well over 500 acres including 280 of Premier and Grand Cru Cote d’Or vineyards.
With their immense acreage under management in their portfolio, they have their pick of some of the best vineyards in all of Burgundy, giving them a few legs up over the majority of their competition. Robert Parker, Jr. himself said of the winery, “This is an extraordinary house where quality is the highest priority.” They remain the only Burgundian negociant included in his iconic “World’s Great Wine Estates” report.
Their innovation and foresight has set them apart as has their dedication to the process. The winery is so meticulous about each step that they even started their own oak barrel cooperage, Cadus in order to make wines that best bring out the Burgundian expression.
But with all the regions and categories that Jadot has a stronghold on, it’s perplexing that they’re so far behind in America’s hottest category: pink wines. For such an iconic brand, I was certainly surprised when I got an email with a one time “introductory pricing” on a 30-case order. An introduction to Louis Jadot? Okay, I guess. I didn’t know anyone needed one.
