Food Pairings for Louis Jadot Morgon
This wine is available for EN PRIMEUR purchase ONLY. Maison Louis Jadot was founded in 1859 by Louis Henry Denis Jadot. He quickly developed a reputation as a high quality producer and his aim was to build his reputation as a top quality winemaker in Burgundy. To achieve this aim he continued to purchase vineyards to add to the family's earlier purchase of Beaune Clos des Ursules and Chevalier Montrachet Les Demoiselles vineyards. His Grandson, who took over at the end of WWII continued to build Louis Jadot's Domaine holdings by acquiring Grand Cru vineyards in Corton Pougets and Corton Charlemagne. Morgon is one of the 10 'Crus' of the Beaujolais. The production area of Morgon is about 1 100 hectares (2 750 acres) on a granite and schist soil. With a deep cherry colour, and nut and red fruits aromas, this wine has firm tannins, sometimes austere in their youth. The manganese (in the granite of the Py), that vineyard is needing, allows it to be kept several years. It will perfectly match with duck, pigeon, and others small games with plums, with or without sauce. It will be perfect with fine but quite strong cheeses.
