Louis Jadot (375ml), 2016, Bourgogne Pinot Noir, Couvent des Jacobins

Red, Old World, Pinot Noir from Burgundy



In 1985, in order to ensure the company's future, Madame Jadot decided to sell the company to the family of Rudy Kopf, Jadot's US importer.

In order to achieve the best possible quality they have, for the past 20 years, banished all use of synthetic products (fertilisers, herbicides, etc) on their vineyards soils and have taken up traditional practices instead. Their work is done either by tractor or, for the most inaccessible vineyards, by horse. They don't work their soil deeply but prefer to concentrate on surface actions in order to preserve its innate structure. They encourage their vines to grow their roots in such a way as to enable them to mine the soil's minerality.

Jadot’s numerous long-term relationships with wine growers guarantee that the highest-quality fruit is sourced every year from vineyards across the Côte d’Or and Côte Chalonnaise. This wine was aged in French oak for 9 months to develop delightfully smooth tannins.

Louis Jadot creates this wine in a state-of-the-art winemaking facility that is dedicated entirely to the production of Bourgogne Pinot Noir with a focus on quality.

This Pinot has complex aromas of plums, raspberries and cherries and fresh red fruit flavors in the mouth with earthy floral, mushroom and mineral notes and balance acidity. Goes well with roast chicken, pork or grilled fish.
