About the winery:
Maison Louis Jadot was founded in 1859 by Louis Henry Denis Jadot. Originally it was primarily a trading house, but today it owns more than 225 hectares of its own vineyards. Its total range includes wines from Chablis, Côte d'Or, Côte Chalonnaise, Mâconnais and Beaujolais, in the latter case usually made at its own Château des Jacques. The starting point for all wines is that each vineyard has its characteristics and that the terroir is therefore leading.
