Vines Chardonnay ( %)

Chablis is the northernmost municipality in Burgundy. Near the city of Auxerre, the vineyard is located halfway between Dijon and Paris.

The continental climate, hot in summer and cold in winter, with formidable spring frosts, the soil made of limestone marl (kimmeridgian) make Chablis an original.

 

The Chablis denomination extends over the limestone hills of the right and left banks of an enchanting river, "Le Serein". 3,500 hectares of Chardonnay are planted here, including 586 hectares of Premiers and Grands Crus. After gentle pressing, part of the juice is fermented in double 456-liter pieces.

 

Another part is vinified and aged in stainless steel vats. Refinement lasts from 13 to 15 months on fine lees before preparation for bottling.

Louis Jadot

The Maison Louis Jadot was founded in 1859 by Louis Henry Denis Jadot, descendant of a family strongly linked to the Burgundian wine world, having owned, since 1826, the famous Clos des Ursules in Beaune. When Louis Auguste Jadot died in 1962, his partner, Albert Gagey, took over the company, followed by his son, Pierre-Henry. In 1985, the Maison Louis Jadot was purchased by Rudy Kopf, importer of Louis Jadot wines in the United States and founder of the Kobrand Corporation. Today the maison operates mainly as a negociant and controls 240 hectares of vineyards scattered throughout Burgundy, from the Côte d’Or to the Macônnais up to the Beaujolais. The varieties planted are Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Aligoté and Gamay for Beaujolais. To reach high quality levels, the Maison Louis Jadot has been leading the vineyards for about twenty years, banning the use of synthetic products. Over the years the company has grown by acquiring, in addition to vineyards and cellars, in 1995, the Tonnellerie Cadus. From the beginning, the mission of the Maison Louis Jadot has been to harmoniously develop all the appellations of Burgundy, from the Grands Crus to the regional names.
