About the producer

Louis Henry Denis Jadot created his own house in 1859 at a time when winemaking was flourishing in Burgundy and the region was creating its structure. Quickly, he developed a bustling trade business with northern European countries, especially because his family was originally from Belgium. His son Louis-Jean-Baptiste followed him and developed the vineyard, while his grandson Louis-Auguste favoured exporting the wine to English-speaking countries after the war. In 1954, André Gagey joined the flourishing family business and took over the reins in 1962 following the premature death of Louis-Auguste. In 1970 - a significant date for the house - Jacques Lardière, a young œnologist, joined the team and gave the house the burst of energy it needed.
In 1985, Madame Jadot decided to ensure the company's financial future and sell it to the Rudy Kopf family, the long-time, US importer of the company's wines. Today, Thomas Seiter manages the famous house, located in the heart of Beaune. Along with Château des Jacques in Moulin-à-Vent and Domaine Ferret in Pouilly-Fuissé, Maison Louis Jadot has several other vineyards to its name, coving some 154 hectares of vines in Côte d’Or, the Mâconnais and Beaujolais. We can count 70 hectares in Côte d’Or which are essentially all grand and premier cru plots shared between Domaine Louis Jadot, Domaine Gagey, Domaine des Héritiers Louis Jadot and Domaine du Duc de Magenta.

About the wine

Corton is produced in the communes of Aloxe-Corton and Ladoix-Serrigny. This is the only grand cru in the Côte de Beaune that has red and white wine, which makes it, along with the Musigny in Chambolle-Musigny, the only two-coloured Burgundy grands crus. On the Pougets parcel, situated at mid-slope, on the south-facing side of Corton hill, the vines benefit from maximum sunshine. This wine with its red fruit and spicy aromas requires a long maturing of nearly 20 months (partly in new barrels) to maintain its denseness. After aeration it develops dark fruit aromas with tarry undertones. Highly concentrated, with blackberry and liquorice flavours on the palate. The Corton Pougets needs to aged for about ten years.
