Description

Louis Jadot Beaune Bressandes 1er Cru Blanc is made from grapes sourced from the “Les Bressandes” vineyard. Beaune Bressandes 1er Cru is situated at the North of the vineyard, at the top of the slope above Les Toussaints and Les Cents Vignes and next to Les Grèves. It is considered to be one of the finest white Premiers Crus. The Beaune vineyards are the most extensive of the Côte de Beaune, between Savigny to the North, and Pommard to the South. There are no Grand Cru vineyards in this commune, but 36 Premiers Crus.

Maison 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, 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 (they own the fantastic Domaine Ferret). Today the business is headed by Pierre-Henry Gagey, son of André Gagey, who was entrusted with the management of Louis Jadot in 1962 by Madame Jadot following the tragic death of her son. Pierre Henry is a passionate believer in terroir, allowing the wines to present the very essence of Burgundy. Louis Jadot wines from vineyards owned by the Gagey family are labelled as Domaine Gagey.
