Description

Louis Jadot Chablis Grand Cru Blanchot is 100% Chardonnay. Chablis is located in the the northern part of Burgundy, half way between Dijon and Paris. The continental climate
(very cold in winter and hot in the summer with frosts in spring) and the marly limestone soils combine to mould the unique character of Chablis wines.

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 fouded 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.

Louis Jadot Chablis Grand Cru Blanchot is produced from one of only 7 Grand Cru “climats” in Chablis. They are: Preuses, Bougros, Les Clos, Grenouilles, Blanchot, Valmur and Vaudésir. The vineyards are located on the right side of Le Serein river, on the hill. This
situation helps to produce strong and full-bodied character in the wine. The Chardonnay grapes undergo a a soft pressing and then part of the juice is fermented in “double barrels” of 406 litres produced by Louis Jadot’s own cooperage Cadus. The other part is vinified and aged in stainless steel vats. Aging usually lasts 13 to 15 months on fine lees prior to bottling.
