92 Points, The Wine Advocate

"The 2015 Meursault 1er Cru Perrières boasts the finest and most sophisticated bouquet among Jadot's premier cru Meursaults: scents of yellow plum, dandelion, sunflower seeds and lemon curd. The palate is well balanced with crisp acidity, good weight in the mouth, though it needs more acidity to cut through the richness on the finish." Neal Martin

Maison Louis Jadot owns over 60 hectares of vineyard, many of them premier and grand cru, and inJacques Lardière has one of the most respected winemakers working in Burgundy today, from impressive purpose built cellars on the road to Savigny-les-Beaunes.

Founded in 1859 the company is today run by Pierre-Henri Gagey, assisted by head winemaker Jacques Lardière who has been responsible for the company’s wines since 1970.
Recent developments have included the establishment of thetonnellerie Cadus in Ladoix-Serrigny and expansion of the modern winery facilities on the Route de Savigny, with a new white-wine vinification centre completed in 2009. On the vineyard front there have been purchases in the Mâconnais (Domaine Ferret) and the Beaujolais, notably with the Château des Jacques in Moulin-à-Vent and the Château de Bellevue in Morgon.
