Goedhuis, August 2018
This fine vineyard situated above the town of Beaune was one of the Domaine des Héritiers Jadot’s earliest acquisitions of vineyards in the 1830s. Theurons lies in the heart of the Beaune appellation and is considered one of the very finest sites, balancing classically perfumed aromatics with bold fruit. This 2015 is a beautiful example of those characteristics: it is brimming with juicy cherry fruit on the nose. The palate is given structure from some abundant and high-quality tannins. This Pinot has the texture and concentration to stand up very well with food.

Theurons lies in the heart of the Beaune appellation and is considered one of the very finest sites, balancing classically perfumed aromatics with bold fruit. Today , Domaine Gagey is one of Jadot’s most prized possessions. This 2015 is a beautiful example of those characteristics: it is brimming with juicy cherry fruit on the nose. The palate is given structure from some abundant and high-quality tannins. This Pinot has the texture and concentration to stand up very well with food.
Neal Martin, December 2016,
The 2015 Beaune 1er Cru Les Theurons was more closed than its Beaune "siblings" and only reluctantly offered scents of undergrowth-tinged red berry fruit, hints of brown spices emerging with time and suggesting a more complex aromatic profile down the line. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, good weight and more sappiness than the Beaune Grèves, if not quite the same degree of detail. Still, this is a commendable 2015 that perhaps just needs to step up its game once in bottle. Drink 2019-2032

Bright garnet. Racy ‘mineral’ element on the nose. With just a hint of damp rope. Lots going on here! Real punch of bitter cherries on the end. Quite long. Drink 2024-2036.
Maison Louis Jadot
Founded in 1859 by Louis Jadot, Maison Louis Jadot has always been situated in the centre of Beaune in the heart of the Burgundy vineyards. Managed by three generations of the Jadot family and then by the Gagey family assisted by Jacques Lardière in the cellar, Jadot is now directed by Pierre Henry Gagey, who has introduced a new wine making team, Frédéric Barnier and Guillaume Large. Since careful ageing in wooden barrels is so very important for the balance, aromas and the ageing potential of a great wine, in 1996, Louis Jadot entered into partnership with a firm of coopers, forming Cadus Cooperage, established in Ladoix Serrigny. This allows them to control their wood sourcing and the barrel production. Maison Louis Jadot now controls 105 hectares in Burgundy with more than 70 hectares in the Côte d'Or, exclusively in Premier and Grand Cru. They produce both negociant wines under the Maison Louis Jadot label and a number of Domaines: Gagey, Duc de Magenta, Louis Jadot and Héritiers de Louis Jadot.
The viticultural capital of Burgundy, Beaune was the headquarters to the Duchy in the 13th century and is now home to many winemakers and négociants. The appellation of Beaune includes both reds and white wines, though the quantity of red is significantly greater. The soils are predominantly sandier than either those to the north in Aloxe Corton or those to the south in Volnay or Pommard, producing wines that are supple and early drinking in nature. Similar to other surrounding Côte de Beaune appellations, there are no grand crus, but it does offer 42 premier cru sites, some of which are exceptional. These include Les Grèves, Les Teurons and Les Vignes Franches.
