For the past 150 years Louis Jadot has reigned as the greatest wine producer of the Cote d'Or of Burgundy, with international reputation for its outstanding red and white Burgundy fine wines. Louis Jadot boasts 140 acres of vineyards from 24 of the most esteemed sites, including Beaujolais Crus.
The house of Louis Jadot was founded in 1859 though the family had previously been winegrowers in the region, acquiring their famous Clos des Ursules in 1826. Today Pierre-Henri Gagey, who is assisted by Head Winemaker Jacques Lardière, manages the company.
Recent developments include the tonnellerie Cadus and expansion of the modern winery facilities on the Route de Savigny, with a luxury white-wine vinification center. The house of Louis Jadot also owns other prestigious vineyards including the Mâconnais (Domaine Ferret) and the Beaujolais, notably with the Château des Jacques in Moulin-à-Vent and the Château de Bellevue in Morgon.
