Tasting Notes: One of the most famous white wines in the world, this is taut, mineral and crisp with fresh zesty acidity and a stony character making this the quintessential unoaked Chardonnay.

Producer Details: From the tip of Chablis to the toe of Beaujolais, from regional, village, 1er Cru and Grand Cru wines Louis Jadot produces Burgundy and nothing but Burgundy. The familiar Bacchus head label has become the reliable stamp of quality and consistency from what can often be a confusing region. Louis Henry Denis Jadot founded the business in 1859. His vision was to build a business with a high quality reputation. One of his key aims, as well as to make top wines, was to build a significant vineyard base. This vision remains core to the business today, now headed up by Pierre Henry Gagey, son of Andre Gagey, who was entrusted with the management of Louis Jadot in 1962 by Madame Jadot following the tragic death of her son, Louis Auguste Jadot. Pierre Henry is a passionate believer in terroir, allowing the wines to present the very essence of Burgundy.

In The Vineyard: Chablis is in the northern part of Burgundy, half way between Dijon and Paris. The continental climate (very cold in winter and hot in the summer with frosts in spring) and the marly limestone soils combine to mould the unique steely character of Chablis wines. About 3500ha are planted (including 856ha of Premier and Grands Crus) with 100% chardonnay grapes.

In The Winery: This wine is fermented by different growers, mainly in vats and then aged in the Louis Jadot cellars between 9-12 months before bottling.
