Louis Jadot Pinot Noir offers a color of medium intensity, purplish in its youth changing to ruby and then garnet after several years in bottle. It is harmonious and balanced, with a plump fruitiness and silky texture offet by round, gentle tannins in a wine of medium body and elegant structure. The very typical fragrant varietal bouquet is complemented by a deliciously lingering finish.
The House of Louis Jadot has been producing exceptional Burgundy wines since its founding in 1859 by Louis Henry Denis Jadot.

Pinot Noir is a finicky grape. It only grows in the right climate, with the right soils and the right care. Perhaps because it is so difficult is why it is so loved. Pinot Noir hails from Burgundy, a region known for crafting the most collectible and sought-after wines from this varietal. Not only does Pinot reign in Burgundy, it is also essential in Champagne, where it is one of the three main grapes in creating sparkling wine. Pinot Noir mutates easily and so there are many different clones floating around in different wine regions.
