About the Winery
The wines of Burgundy are amongst the best that you can ever find. The terroir's quality and the climate conditions of this place make it one of the most premium wine-producing places in the world. Louis Jadot, is one label that has been making exemplary French Burgundy wines ever since 1859. The idea of starting this company happened during 1826 when the Jadot family acquired small & individual lots of area in Beaune Premier Cru Clos des Ursules.
Louis Henri Denis Jadot established this wine label in 1859, and this family-owned domaine has been making wine lovers happy to date. Jadot founded this company with the sole aim of popularising the richness of Burgundy wines to the North European countries. Today, many generations later, Louis Jadot wines continue to dominate the European markets.
In 1985, Madame Jadot decided to sell off the family-owned domaine of Louis Jadot to Rudy Kopf. Kopf, until then, was the US importer of the rich Jadot wines. Kopf decided to take the Jadot legacy forward by being true to this brand's rich cultural heritage. Thanks to the blend of ancient and modern winemaking techniques followed here, Louis Jadot is considered America's No.1 French Wine for many years.
