Description

Louis Jadot is one of the largest and most famous wine producers and negociants in the Burgundy wine-growing region. The origins of the company date back to 1859 when the business was founded by Louis Henry Denis Jadot. Over time the company has acquired plots of vines is some of the most prestigious vineyards in the region including Beaune Clos des Ursules, Chambertin Clos de Bèze, Savigny Les Beaune and many more. Louis Jadot owns or directly controls 120 ha in the Côte d’Or, including over 90 individual vineyard sites, 84ha in the Beaujolais Crus and 18ha in the Mâconnais primarily in Pouilly Fuissé.

The grapes come from the are sourced from the “Les Boucherottes” vineyard which lies at the southern end of the commune, partly bordering Pommard. It is superbly situated just below “Les Chouacheux” and “Vignes Franches” and between “Clos des Mouches” and “Les Epenottes” on the lower portion of the slope. The vineyard covers approximately 21 acres and is planted on the deep clay soils which adds a lush quality to the wine.

After harvest the Pinot Noir grapes for the Louis Jadot Beaune 1er Cru Boucherottes undergo a traditional vinification. They are destemmed and fermented in open vats for around 4 weeks, which brings out all the expressions of the terroir.
