Description

Louis Jadot Pernand Vergelesses Les Combottes Blanc is a white Burgundy form the Cote de Beaune wine-growing region of Burgundy. The vineyards of Pernand-Vergelesses are located next to Aloxe-Corton and Savigny-les-Beaune. They are very well oriented, facing East- South-Ouest. Their altitude varies from 260 to 380 m.

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.

The Louis Jadot Pernand Vergelesses Les Combottes vineyard is located rather high on the hill of Pernand-Vergelesses, not far from the Hautes Côtes de Beaune Appellation. The soil here is mainly composed of brown-yellow marls and clay dating back to the young Jurassic period (about 150 million years). The surface is very rich in oxide, mainly iron explaining the brown colour. The grapes are harvested by hand into small wooden crates to preserve the integrity of the fruit. The grapes are gently pressed and fermented in wooden barrels, from Jadot’s own cooperage, a third of which are new. The wine is aged for 15 months on the fine lees prior to bottling.
