Louis Jadot is one of the Premier Negociant names in all of Burgundy. Established in 1859 by Louis Henry Denis Jadot, the house as went on to create wines from many of the most prized vineyards in all of Burgundy.
The Chablis vineyards where this wine hails, are made special by the combination of continental climate (very cold in winter and hot in the summer with frosts in spring) and the marly limestone soils which combine to mould the unique character of Chablis wines.
The grapes for this particular Chablis are harvested by hand and put in small cases in order not to damage the fruits. They are then softly pressed. Fermentation takes place in oak barrels (1/3 are new) and aging usually lasts 15 months on fine lies before bottling. The result is a very nice golden yellow colour. It is a lipid, bright and fresh wine, whose taste and bouquet develop relatively quickly. It should be served chilled, and can be served with oysters, charcuterie and fried fish. It also goes very well with goats cheese.
