Louis Jadot Chambolle Musigny 1er Cru Les Baudes Vertical
THREE DECADES OF LOUIS JADOT CHAMBOLLE MUSIGNY PREMIER CRU LES BAUDES. Join us for a fine wine evening tasting our way through seven vintages of this excellent Premier Cru red Burgundy.
From the tip of Chablis to the toe of Beaujolais, from regional, village, 1er Cru and Grand Cru wines Louis Jadot produces Burgundy and nothing but Burgundy. The familiar Bacchus head label has become the reliable stamp of quality and consistency from what can often be a confusing region. Louis Henry Denis Jadot founded the business in 1859. His vision was to build a business with a high quality reputation. One of his key aims, as well as to make top wines, was to build a significant vineyard base. This vision remains core to the business today.
Over time, prestigious acquisitions have included Beaune Clos des Ursules, Chevalier Montrachet Les Demoiselles , the Clair Dau Estate with vineyards in Bonnes Mares, Chambertin Clos de Bèze, Musigny and Gevrey Chambertin Clos St Jacques. Plus the picturesque Santenay Clos de Malte and Premier Cru holdings in Puligny Montrachet, Savigny Les Beaune, Pernand Vergelesses and Corton Grand Cru to name but a few.
Today, the business is headed up by Pierre-Henry Gagey, son of André Gagey, who was entrusted with the management of Louis Jadot in 1962 by Madame Jadot following the tragic death of her son, Louis Auguste Jadot. Pierre-Henry is a passionate believer in terroir, allowing the wines to present the very essence of Burgundy.
In 1992, André Gagey bought a parcel of the 1er Cru vineyard, Les Baudes, which is situated directly below the great Grand Cru vineyard of Bonnes Mares. As expected, this superb vineyard lives up to its location yielding exquisitely structured, long lived wines with pretty flora and ripe red berry characters.
