  Maison Louis Jadot is a winery that’s proud of its heritage and land. Founded in 1859 by Louis Henry Denis Jadot, Maison Jadot expanded rapidly, taking northern Europe by storm. When his son, Louis Jean Baptiste, took over in 1900, more change took place, and many vineyards were acquired, including Corton Charlemagne and Chevalier Montrachet Les Demoiselles. With the help of Rudy Kopf, founder of the Kobrand Corporation, Maison Jadot expanded even further, setting up shop in both England and the U.S. In 1985, Madame Jadot sold the company to Rudy Kopf’s family, ensuring a successful future for the company. The land is very important to Maison Louis Jadot, and making the terroir shine through is always a priority. Maison Jadot identifies with its Burgundy heritage, and all wines are Appellation Contrôlée. The winery controls about 380 acres of land in Burgundy, including Côte d'Or, Mâconnais and Beaujolais. Jacques Lardière, winemaster, works with Christine, Guillaume, and Audrey to ensure that the single-variety wines produced, including Pinot Noir for reds, Chardonnay for whites, and Gamay for Beaujolais, always produce the best, most consistent wines.

Lovely and fresh on the nose with pure aromas of apple blossoms, apples and hints of greengage plums. Light-bodied and very finely balanced with assertive if integrated acidity adding cut to the light and simple apple fruit. This has a nice inner mouth perfume and lively transparency of flavors with suggestions of green herbs and perhaps a whisper of tarragon on the palate. Very clean and a touch mineral on the light and aromatic finish. Nothing is going to bowl you over here, but this is easy, fresh and pure. 86pts

Very clean and crisp unoaked white burgundy with lemon zest, pineapple, white pepper and tongue cleansing acidity. Great QPR.

Light with notes of apricot and even plum. Very unlike oaky Californian Chardonnays. For more on the Tuscany vs All French, visit http://dionyshius.blogspot.com/2012/04/tuscany-versus-all-french-tasting.html

I drink this label often and am rarely disappointed as I often am with chewy buttery California Chards.

Melon, citrus, earthy, lingering and definitely acidic. I enjoyed a taste of this one but found it difficult to finish my glass.

This is crisp and acidic, almost sour, in a good way. It's definitely quite dry and relatively full-bodied with a flavor that lingers. In fact, it felt almost too heavy when I tried it at a 65-degree room temperature. This wine should definitely be chilled a bit first to help compliment the sharp taste.

Wines of the Maconnais are lighter and more delicate than wines of the Cocirc;te drsquo;Or. This Chardonnay is fruity, elegant and crisp, and more delicious when fresh and young.

You can definitely detect the wood in this wine, but it is finely integrated with the creamy apricot and white fruit flavors. Acidity fits well into this ripe, easy and soft Chardonnay.

Ripe wine, pushing its toast, pear and apricot flavors. Smooth, with an English walnut taste, and green herb acidity.

The wines of the Maconnais are produced exclusively from the Chardonnay grape. Lighter and more delicate than the wines of the Cote d'Or. This Chardonnay is fruity, elegant and crisp, and most delicious when fresh and young.

Free of oak, this simple Mâcon allows chardonnay's bright, appley flavors to sing. It's refreshing in itself, or with sole in a beurre blanc.
