The house of Louis Jadot was founded in 1859 though the family had previously been vignerons in the region, acquiring their famous Clos des Ursules in 1826. After the death of the last male members of the family, long-time manager André Gagey took over running the business which was subsequently purchased by the Koch family, owners of Jadot’s US importers Kobrand. The company is today run by Pierre-Henri Gagey, assisted by head winemaker Jacques Lardière who has been responsible for the company’s wines since 1970. They own over 60 hectares of vineyard, many of them premier and grand cru.
The Jadot Vosne-Romanee is full bodied and well-balanced. It has a strong violet and cherry nose with delicate hints of vanilla. Refined and structured, this silky textured wine exhibits intense and elegant red berry flavours.
