Tasting Notes

  • GDH

    Goedhuis, August 2018

    Les Folatières is Puligny’s largest premier cru and enjoys an enviable mid-slope position and chalky limestone soils. Fortunately, Puligny-Montrachet was spared the worst frost damage in 2016 and this cuvée from the much-loved Domaine Louis Jadot strikes the perfect balance between freshness and intensity, revealing notes of white flowers, lemon and toasted almonds with plenty of grip and minerality on the palate.

  • BURG

    Burghound, June 2018,
    Score: 89-92

    A whiff of exotic character is present on the white peach, mandarin orange and floral aromas that are trimmed in discreet wood influence. The citrus-inflected, intense and attractively minerally middle weight flavors possess good weight and punch though not the same refinement on the relatively robust and powerful finale. Drink: 2023+

Producer

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.

Region

Bourgogne

This blanket regional appellation can apply to wines throughout Burgundy (60% of the area's production) as long as they comply with regulations relating to grape type, yield and alcohol content. Reds and roses are from Pinot Noir or Gamay. Whites are Chardonnay. They are usually the most straightforward of the Burgundy wines, and as a result are the least expensive and the most approachable upon release. In the hands of a more serious producer these can represent exceptional value and quality. The wines are made with the same care and attention to detail as their grander wines. However, they may not qualify for a village or communal appellation because the vines are too young or the vineyard area is outside the appellation boundary.
