This wine will perfectly match delicate dishes – something that’s not too spicy. Also pairs well with red meat, game and quite strong cheeses.

Nose: Red berry fruits and cherries – giving off a bit of tar, wet soil and undergrowth aromas when older.

Grape Varieties: 100% Pinot Noir
Aging: 18 months in oak barrels
History of Louis Jadot
It all began with a parcel of vines. And we all know just how important these individual bits of land are in Burgundy. It was with the purchase of the Beaune Premier Cru Clos des Ursules that the story of Maison Louis Jadot began in 1826.
Three decades. That’s the time it took Louis Henri Denis Jadot to found our house, in 1859, and to lay the foundations of a family-owned domaine. He would contribute to the renown of the wines of Burgundy by developing a negotiant business focused on selling the wines in Northern European markets.
The label of Maison Louis Jadot’s wines are characterised by the instantly recognisable image of Bacchus’s head, an image that has become, in many ways, the signature of the house and a symbol of its identity, whatever is in the bottle.
