This medium-bodied wine is harmonious, with forward, plump fruit and a silky texture balanced by round, gentle tannins and elegant structure. The very typical Pinot aromas and flavors of red cherries and wild strawberries have an undernote of light tobacco and earth, leading to a lingering finish. Pairs with red meats, roasts, duck, mild game, pork tenderloin and soft cheeses such as camembert and brie.
Louis Jadot has recently completed a winery dedicated exclusively to the production of its Bourgogne Pinot Noir. Jadot’s numerous long-term relationships with wine growers guarantee that the highest-quality fruit is sourced every year from vineyards across the Burgundy appellation. To further elevate the quality, Jadot practices réplis, or declassifying some wines of higher appellations, which are added to the final blend.
Maison Louis Jadot was founded in 1859 by the man whose name it bears, Louis Henry Denis Jadot. The first of his family arrived in Beaune from Belgium in 1794 and soon began purchasing Premier and Grand Cru vineyards. With grape growing a part of his heritage, Louis Henry set about gaining experience first in the cellars, in the evaluation of wines, and then in the vineyards, in the study of viticulture.
