Louis Jadot is one of Burgundys most consistent and celebrated négociants, with a range that is universally adored from its classic Bourgogne to the finest Grand Cru. Established when Louis-Henri Jadot bought the Beaune Premier Cru monopole Clos des Ursules in 1826, the company passed to the Gagey family, who eventually sold it their long-term importer to the US, Kobrand. The company now boasts over 130 hectares of vineyards stretching from Chablis to Beaujolais, but its the quality of the wines that have made them a household name.


==========================================


2019 was a warm and dry vintage in Burgundy, so yields were down, but the concentration and quality were through the roof. Which makes the Couvent des Jacobins a classic half bottle to have on hand when you fancy a little glass of liquid sunshine. Predominantly Côte dOr fruit, with a little from Mâconnais, this Bourgogne Chardonnay is partly vinified in oak, adding weight and a delicate creaminess to the ripe fruit and zingy lemon of this crisp white. In this wine, Frédéric Barnier has created a brilliant posterchild for the delights and complexity of white Burgundy.


With fresh floral aromas, the wine shows elegant, rich fruit on the palate. This is one of the purest expressions of Chardonnay in Burgundy. Pairs with vegetable terrines, poultry & goat cheese.
