Louis Henry Denis Jadot founded Maison Louis Jadot in 1859. Now a sizeable negociant based in Beaune, all the wines made under the Maison Louis Jadot label are appellation contrôlée wines from across the region. The vineyards of Maison Louis Jadot are now scattered across 154 hectares of Burgundy, from the Côte d'Or to the Mâconnais and down into Beaujolais.
Saint-Romain is a small village next to Auxey-Duresses. The vineyards are quite high and steep, planted under famous cliffs. Vineyards have South/South-East orientation. The soils of Saint-Romain are made of lime stones with some clay veins, very appropriate to the production of white wines.
Colour: pale gold with greenish highlights
Nose: aromatically intensive, polyphonic bouquet of fresh almonds, marzipan, dried pineapple and beeswax, which develop into notes of cinnamon and pepper as it matures
Palate: firm and smooth at the same time, rich but very lively with racy acidity right through to the end with an elegant aftertaste of beeswax and a hint of ginger
Food Suggestion: Delicious with a herby chicken and mushroom pie in a light puff pastry crust.
