Description

Louis Jadot Marsannay Blanc is 100% Chardonnay. Marsannay is the northernmost commune of the Côte d’Or, lying virtually on the outskirts of the city of Dijon, three miles north of Gevrey Chambertin. The Marsannay AOC was created in 1987, and is the most recent addition to the Côte de Nuits. It became the first village for which the appellation applies to red, white and rosé 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, 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. 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.

The grapes for the Louis Jadot Marsannay Blanc are harvested by hand in to small crates in order to preserve the integrity of the fruit. The grapes are then gently pressed and fermented in the barrels produced by Jadot’s own cooperage, a third of which are new. Aging lasts about 15 months on fine lees before preparation for bottling.
