About the Winery:
Masion Louis Jadot was founded in 1859 by Louis Henry Denis Jadot when he purchased a wine negociant house, Lemarie-Foulex. The company would see its strongest international growth in the 1940’s and 1950’s as they began exporting wine to the United Kingdom, the Netherland, US and South American countries. In 1962, Louis Auguste Jadot would die at the age of 23 leaving the company without a successor. It was decided that Jadot’s widow and daughters would retain ownership of the family firm, and André Gagey would take over operations. Gagey would transform the company from a negociant firm into a full-fledged owner-producer firm; using their vineyards for their wines. In 1986 they would contract to operate Domaine du Duc de Magenta, which featured premier cru and Chardonnay grapes. The current winemaker is Frédéric Barnier, who carries out the practices and traditions of his predecessors. Louis Jadot currently produces 10-wines for the world to enjoy!
Tobin’s Review 3 out of 5
Louis Jadot’s Macon Villages Chardonnay 2020 has a mineral hue with aromas of melon and floral notes. The wine is soft and creamy with flavors of honeydew, a hint of white pepper and citrusy lemon. Overall, it’s okay. I used to like this wine a lot more than I do now.
