Marks and reviews
Established since 1859, Maison Louis Jadot is a true benchmark in Burgundy. Its adventure began with the acquisition of a plot of land in 1826. Its trading activity led to its swift international recognition. Today and since 1992, the house is managed by Pierre-Henry Gagey and still ensures that Burgundy wines remain accessible to those who love high-quality wines.
At the head of Maison Louis Jadot since 1992, Pierre-Henry Gagey entrusted his position to Thomas Seiter (Bouchard Père et Fils) and role of General Manager to his son Thibault Gagey in September 2022.
This Grand Cru Domaine Louis Jadot 2021 by Louis Jadot is a Clos Vougeot wine, an emblematic 50-hectare terroir located in the heart of the Côte de Nuits. As the second owner of the 88 hectares of this Clos, Maison Louis Jadot reigns over an exceptional vineyard of nearly 0.5 hectares, facing east and resting on clay-limestone soil.
2021 is a year marked by severe frost at the beginning of April and unstable weather conditions throughout the year. Despite a below-average harvest, the quality is reflected through the floral and well-balanced white wines as well as vibrant, full and aromatic red wines.
