Description

Louis Jadot Nuits Saint Georges 1er Cru Les Boudots is a 1er Cru vineyard located next to the Premier Cru vineyards of Vosne Romanée, at the northern edge of the Nuits Saint Georges appellation.

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.

The soils in this vineyard are primarily composed of brown limestone and marl. The vineyard has a perfect exposure to the East which gives the capacity to produce splendid wines.
