  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.

I'm in the middle of studying Burgundy wines in Karen MacNeil's "Wine Bible"...on the section of wines from Maconnais region. Louis Jadot's 2008 Macon-Villages chardonnay lives up to the taste expected of Chardonnays from Burgundy. Clean and crisp..a slight lemony taste and a definite chalky mineral lingering on the middle of the tongue. Not as assertive as a Rully of the same caliber...but almost as good. I'm quite happy with this wine...and it paired quite well with sauteed sole for dinner.

I was disappointed. Not full bodied enough for me.
