Information
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

Clos des Ursules vines represent the finest cuvées produced by Louis Jadot. The name of this Monopole Cru dates back to the 17th century and the Ursuline convent who owned 24 hectares of fine vineyards, bought with donations received from local parishioners. One of these parcels became known as the "Clos des Ursules" when it was acquired by Louis Henry Denis Jadot, in 1826. Jadot at the time was a simple winemaker, this was long before the Maison Louis Jadot was founded (1859). This mid-sloped parcel is situated south of the Beaune vineyards is ideally oriented towards the east. On average, the vines are 35 years old, and grow in a geologically complex sub-soil which resembles the vineyards at Côte de Nuits. Of course, the harvest is done by hand and the subsequent sorting is extremely rigorous. This wine proves to be perfectly aromatic and clearly represents the terroir from which it comes. It is structured but elegant, with huge ageing potential. When it comes to food and wine, you’re spoiled for choice, why not try a grilled prime rib?
