Tasting Notes: One of the most famous white wines in the world and one for which Louis Jadot is justifiably famous; a lovely rich wine that shows the true delights of Chardonnay, soft and elegant with a rich mouth feel, delicate use of oak and good acid balance.

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: Located in the southern part of Burgundy, at the northern limit of Beaujolais, Pouilly Fuissé is a region that has no Premier Crus. The villages producing Pouilly Fuissé are Pouilly, Fuisse, Solutre, Vergisson and Chaintre. There are nuances in taste between the villages, with Pouilly regarded as the best.

In The Winery: Part of the wine is fermented in vats and the other in oak barrels in order to have a fresh and fruity wine with a good structure.
