There are 2 units left in stock.
ABOUT THIS WINE
Chambolle-Musigny is a village of great renown despite its small size. He owes his reputation to the quality of its wines and the reputation of its premier crus.
The “Fuées” vineyard rests on a clay-siliceous soil with quite a number of hard pebbles. He is located on the same vein as the Bonnes Mares, at altitude, facing due east. The grapes, characterized by very blackberries, are destemmed and vinified in open vats for about 4 weeks, thus fully revealing all the subtlety of this terroir. After devatting, the wines are barreled in oak barrels in our cellars and matured for 18 months.
ABOUT THIS PRODUCER
Louis Jadot is one of Burgundy's most important negociants, both qualitatively and quantitatively, with a portfolio that covers everything from inexpensive Bourgogne and Beaujolais wines to several grand cru wines, from the Côte de Beaune to Chablis. Unsurprisingly, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay feature heavily in the portfolio.
The house was founded in Beaune in 1859 by Louis Jadot, although the first vineyard – Clos de Ursules – was purchased in the 1820s. The headquarters remain in Beaune, although vineyard holdings have increased exponentially. Louis Jadot owns land in some of Burgundy's most famous vineyards, including Le Musigny, Échezeaux, Chapelle-Chambertin and in the famously fragmented Clos de Vougeot vineyard. Louis Jadot wines are also made in Chambertin, Montrachet, Corton and Romanée-Saint-Vivant.
As well as the sizeable portfolio of wines made under the Louis Jadot label itself, the house also makes wines for Domaine du Duc de Magenta, and for Domaine Gagey. Andre Gagey took over as general manager for Louis Jadot in 1968 and, along with winemaker Jacques Lardiere, is often held responsible for Louis Jadot's high reputation.
