"The 2009 Montrachet is a wine of contrasts. It is at once delicate yet powerful, and constantly changing in the glass, in the way only the best wines can. This is a cool, precise Montrachet endowed with tons of class and personality. It needs at least a few years to come together, but it is immensely promising. This is a very strong effort from Jadot." - Antonio Galloni
Maison Louis Jadot (or Louis Jadot) is a winery that was founded by Louis Henry Denis Jadot in 1859. The first vineyard bought by the Jadot family is the Beaune vineyard, Clos des Ursules, in 1826.
The family wine company produces and markets Burgundy wine. It operates both its own vineyards and buys grapes from other growers. It controls 270 hectares (670 acres) of vineyards in Burgundy (including Beaujolais Crus), and produces only Appellation d'Origine Contrôlée (AOC) wines. Louis Jadot also owns vineyards in the Mâconnais region: Domaine Ferret in Fuissé and in the Beaujolais region in Moulin à Vent: Château des Jacques.
In 1996, Louis Jadot partnered with Tonnellerie Vicard and created its own cooperage called Cadus, in order to produce French oak barrels crafted in the Burgundian tradition.
