Louis Loius

Tomorrow I will be tasting a range of wines from Louis Jadot, and as such I would like to share some of what I have learned about the esteemed winery.

  • Maison LJ was founded in 1859 by Louis Henry Dennis Jadot
  • Based in Beaune, France
  • 154 hectacres in Burgundy ranging from Côte d'Or to the Mâconnais and down into Beaujolais
  • All labels bear the head of Bacchus, the god of wine!
  • Team of 70 employees!
  • For the past 20 years they have not used synthetic fertilizers or herbicides

Chardonnay for the WHITES
Pinot Noir for the REDS

Have you tried LJ before?  Thoughts?  Favorites?  Disappointments?

I myself had their Beaujolais Villages just a few weeks back in wine class.  Most people don't like Beaujolais, but it holds a special place in my glass as I have only recently discovered it.  And I quite like it!
