While Maison Louis Jadot was founded in 1859, its origins date back all the way to 1826 when the Jadot family purchased Premier Cru Clos des Ursules in Beaune. Louis Henry Denis Jadot ran this successful négociant house before establishing Louis Jadot Winery. At the turn of the century his son Louis Jean Baptiste took over the company and expanded Louis Jadot vineyards by buying Corton Charlemagne and Chevalier Montrachet Les Demoiselles vineyards. Many years later in 1985 Madame Jadot decided to sell the company to the Kopf Family, Jadot's US importer, and by 1992 Pierre-Henry Gagey became president of Maison Louis Jadot. Today all Louis Jadot wines produced are Appellation Controlee wines and their vineyards span across 380 acres throughout Burgundy. In keeping with the AOC regulations all their wines produced within the Cote d’Or utilize Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grapes while their Beaujolais wines are all Gamay. Our Louis Jadot reviews illustrate the versatility of Maison Louis Jadot in their ability to provide a value option with their Bourgogne and Beaujolais wines while their small production Premier and Grand Cru selections are regarded as some of the best in the region according to our Louis Jadot ratings.
