The nose shows a nice complexity of white flesh fruits, hazelnuts, and hawthorn as well as fresh butter and toasted bread. It is both delicate and dynamic in the mouth. A well-balanced wine between smoothness and fresh minerality: very representative of this terroir with nice long-lasting aromas on the finish.
Maison Louis Jadot is one of the most trusted and revered wine houses in Burgundy’s Côte d’Or. Frédéric Barnier, Jadot’s esteemed winemaker, and his team balance tradition and technology, focusing on the purest expression of each wine’s terroir. These principles of vinification take the lightest possible hand in winemaking, and produce the essence of fine Burgundy. Founded in 1859, the house now owns 528 acres of vineyards, including 280 acres of the Cote d’Or’s most prestigious Premier and Grand Cru plots. For 42 years, the legendary Jacques Lardière was responsible for the winemaking and bottling of all Maison Louis Jadot wines, and he is considered to be one of Burgundy’s finest winemakers. Frédéric Barnier joined Maison Louis Jadot in 2010 as Technical Director, working under the guidance of Lardière. Frédéric now leads the winemaking team with the Maison Louis Jadot philosophy: no compromise on quality.
