Notes from Louis Jadot:
"Maison Louis Jadot was founded in 1859 by the man whose name it bears, Louis Henry Denis Jadot. The first of his family arrived in Beaune from Belgium in 1794 and soon began purchasing Premier and Grand Cru vineyards. With grape growing a part of his heritage, Louis Henry set about gaining experience first in the cellars, in the evaluation of wines, and then in the vineyards, in the study of viticulture. Today Louis Jadot remains one of the largest négociants in Burgundy. It owns over 346 acres of vineyards across 80 appellations, and it has six wineries stretching from the Mâconnais up to Chablis."
