Louis Henry Denis Jadot founded the Maison Louis Jadot in 1859. The story began in 1826 in the vineyards with the acquisition by the Jadot family of the Beaune Premier Cru Clos des Ursules.


The Maison Louis Jadot has a simple vision: the long-term preservation of the great terroirs of Burgundy. Founded by Louis Henry Denis Jadot in 1859, the first vineyard purchased by the Jadot family was the Clos des Ursules vineyard in Beaune in 1826.  Jadot consistently draws attention to its excellent wines from the Wine Advocate, James Suckling and, in fact, a consistent and very serious wine. The reason for this is the consistency of the wine range where the villages and first growths receive the same attention as its grand crus.


• I don't know this estate, where do I start?

This wine estate, renowned for its red and white wines, and which produces Grands Crus de Bourgogne, has a vineyard of great renown. It can be found in many appellations (AOC), in Grand Cru, Premier Cru and in village.

If you wish to learn how to taste this beautiful estate, you could start with a beautiful red wine with exceptional aromas: Pommard village from Louis Jadot. A fruity wine (cherry, strawberry on the nose). It is well-balanced and becomes firmer on the voluminous finish and is accessible to lovers of Burgundy wines. The grape variety is entirely Pinot Noir



Frédéric Barnier joined Maison Louis Jadot in 2010 as technical director, working under Jacques Lardière. For 42 years, the legendary Lardière was responsible for the winemaking and bottling of all Maison Louis Jadot wines, and is considered one of the best winemakers in Burgundy. He retired briefly, then came out of retirement to launch Resonance Wines, Jadot's new brand in Oregon. Frédéric now leads the winemaking team with the Maison Louis Jadot philosophy: no compromise on quality.



Jadot invests in Burgundy, buying grapes only from the highest quality producers with whom it has relationships and vinifying the wine on site rather than buying ready-made wines.


For its Beaujolais and Mâconnais wines, Jadot practices an additional, albeit costly, practice called replis, in which wines from a higher appellation are blended into a wine bearing the lower appellation. Thus, for example, Jadot's Beaujolais-Villages usually contains a percentage of wines from Beaujolais crus.



Maison Louis Jadot's winemaking principles balance tradition and technology, and focus on the purest expression of each wine's terroir, with the lightest possible vinification and moderate use of oak aging. For its village-level Côte d'Or wines, Jadot practices an additional, albeit expensive, practice called replis, in which wines from a higher appellation are blended into a wine bearing the lower appellation.


Jadot's cellar practices, including long macerations, the choice of wild yeasts when possible for fermentation, fermentation temperature and other winemaking methods, are also designed to preserve the character of the fruit in the wines. For both red and white wines, Maison Louis Jadot places great importance on the moderate use of new oak in the aging process. The time spent in barrel and the percentage of new oak are dictated differently by each vintage. In keeping with its hands-off philosophy, Jadot believes that great vintages, complete and harmonious in themselves, require minimal contact with new oak.



In 1970, realizing that the future growth of Maison Louis Jadot would depend on its increasing role as owner-producer, Gagey hired Jacques Lardière, a brilliant young oenologist, as his assistant and future technical director. Lardière, now retired, is recognized as one of the best winemakers in Burgundy, an artist who holds the reins of nature in one hand and technology in the other. In 1984, André Gagey's son, Pierre-Henry Gagey, joined the company. He has a solid background in administration and business management, as well as an inherited knowledge of wine. In February 1985, the Maison Louis Jadot trading company was acquired by the owners of Kobrand Corporation, the only American importer of Jadot Burgundies since 1945. In 1991, Pierre-Henry Gagey took over as President, and in 2012, upon Lardière's retirement, he promoted Frederic Barnier to succeed him.
