Goedhuis, December 2021
In addition to the Clos de la Garenne, Louis Jadot purchases grapes within the 1er Cru appellation of Garenne for their negoce label. This is a high class cuvée, characters of chamomile and orange grapefruit, and an expression of huge charm, it absolutely flows through the mouth with its appealing silky sensations, beautifully composed and tremendous finesse at the end.
Neal Martin, December 2021,
The 2020 Puligny-Montrachet La Garenne 1er Cru has a fresh and vibrant bouquet, a clear step up from the Village Cru, with fresh lemon verbena, lime and crushed stone aromas. The palate is medium-bodied with a fine bead of acidity, nicely integrated oak though it is quite vocal on the finish, so afford this 4-5 years in bottle. Closure: Diam. Drink 2025 - 2045
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.
Puligny Montrachet is known as the most delicate of the white wine appellations south of Beaune.Its wines tend to be linear and mineral offering delicate floral and orchard fruit aromatics. Its village and premier cru vineyard area total slightly over 200 hectares but almost half of them are premier cru making them one of the highest proportions of quality vineyards in the Côte de Beaune. Several grand cru vineyards are present, the most notable being Le Montrachet and Bâtard Montrachetwhich it shares with neighbouring Chassagne, but it does have the extraordinary Chevalier Montrachet and the tiny Bienvenues Bâtard Montrachet all to itself. There are a handful of red wines grown, but they tend to be quite light and need to be drunk in their youth.
