Our oenologists' opinion
Its red brick color offers an open nose of cherries, blueberries, juniper and boxwood. On the palate, this distinctive wine is balanced with tight tannins.
Body ? The body is the way a wine feels inside the mouth. Several factors, such as the alcohol content and the presence of tannins, contribute to the feel of the wine.
Freshness ? The freshness of a wine is defined by its level of acidity. Unlike rounded wines, fresh wines are easy to drink, and are more lively. Acidity plays a necessary part in a wine's structure.
Aging ? All wines do not have the same aging potential. Some are supposed to be consumed at a young age while others must be kept for longer periods of time.
Tannins ? Coming from stems, grape pips and their storage barrels, the tannin gives structure to red wines only.
Do you know ?
The origins of the Gevrey-Chambertin appellation date back to the 12th century when a group of Monks of the Bèze abbey started to grow wine. One of their neighbour, Bertin, would have successfully copied their winegrowing methods. We keep talking today about the “champ de Bertin,” meaning literally Bertin’s field, through the prestigious Gevrey-Chambertain appellation.
Domain and appellation
This prestigious Burgundy Maison dates back to 1826 when the Jadot family bought the Clos des Ursules domain. Officially established in 1859, the Louis Jadot vineyards span all across Burgundy from the Côte de Nuits to the Beaujolais wine regions.
- Terroir: With 210 hectares scattered all across the region, the notion of terroir can only be mentioned in a plural form. The Maison Louis Jadot produces appellations’ wines that showcase the diversity of the Burgundy terroirs.
- Viticulture: The domain’s philosophy is driven by the willingness to link past, present, and future. Thankful for what they received, the successive owners have embraced sustainable and environmental-friendly practices in order to preserve the terroirs for upcoming generations.
- Vinification: Following its main goal of creating wines that speak for their terroirs, the domain try to minimize interventions during the winemaking process.
