Jacques Lardiere of Domaine Louis Jadot has been one of the most fascinating and enthusiastic winemakers to represent Burgundy. Under his guidance for the last 42 years, the wines of Jadot have moved from strength to strength, always reaching their peaks.
Sadly, this past vintage was to be his final bottling with Jadot. There comes a time when everything must end. While Jacques is moving on from Jadot, his love of wine and all its secrets and nuances lives on as strong as ever.
Jacques's accent is quite strong, so part of this interview can be a little difficult to follow, but it's worth taking the time to listen to what one of the masters of Burgundy has to say.
