Louis Jadot Volnay Santenots 1984

Member Review by duncan 906:

I bought two bottles of this wine for £35 from the website www.cellartrade.co.uk. Volnay is an appellation created in 1937,although there has been viticulture here for centuries, for red wines from the commune of that name on the Cotes de Beaune in Burgundy There are no Grand Cru vineyards but 29 Premier Cru plus 5 Premier Cru vineyards in neighbouring Meursault known as the Santenots and totaling about 30 hectares use the Volnay appellation for red wines.My bottles come from the large Louis Jadot concern.I started the first bottle last night with my steak supper.There was plenty of a cherry,raspberry and redcurrant style fruit and there was also plenty of structure though the tannins were not intrusive. In short this was a lovely bottle

  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.
