The next generation, under the guidance of Louis Auguste Jadot, developed new export markets, particularly those in England and the US, with the help of Rudy Kopf, the founder of the Kobrand Corporation. In 1954, André Gagey joined the company as Louis Auguste Jadot's deputy. On the latter's premature death in 1962, André Gagey succeeded him as Maison Jadot's director. And, in 1984, André Gagey's son, Pierre-Henry, joined the company. 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. Pierre-Henry Gagey became president of Maison Louis Jadot in 1992.
Cellar Master: Jacques Lardière
Winery Location: Beaune | Burgundy
Annual Production (bottles): Undisclosed
It has an exposure ranging from east to south and Southwest. The Grand Cru vineyard of Les Pougets is directly adjacent to Le Charlemagne climat, on the upper and mid-slope. It is among the five vineyards of the commune in which the variegated soils, alternating between chalk and iron-rich marl, produce both Corton Pougets and Corton Charlemagne.
Jadot purchased this great vineyard in 1914; it faces due south and consistently produces wines with incredible depth and generosity, rich fruit and powerful structure that develop breathtaking complexity with age. This wine is fermented in vats for 3-4 weeks and then aged 18-20 months in oak barrels before bottling. This exceptional site yields a wine of sumptuous brilliance and complexity, powerfully structured and richly fruited. The aromatic Pinot Noir bouquet and deep, layered berry and oak flavours culminate in a seductive, persistent finish.
Weather: 2010 was a very fine vintage in Burgundy despite some challenging weather conditions. 2010 is a smaller production, down some 25% on normal levels. The weather began with a cold and wet winter and temperatures hitting -21C with some of the primary buds were burnt off. Around 650,000 cases of wine were lost overnight. Moving to the spring months and flowering season the weather was cool. In September, the savior month, the dry warm days helped produce a classic burgundy vintage. The bright weather continued until the normal harvest that began on 21st September.
Vineyards: Les Pougets
Grape Varities: 100% Pinor Noir
Drink: Now to 2025
Tasting Note: Typically muted but now after a few years, the flavours are bold. Dark cherry and black fruit on the palate with serious concentration. Quite dry without being astringent but will be great with food in the medium term.

Louis Jadot History
Maison Louis Jadot is a winery located in Burgundy. Founded by Louis Henry Denis Jadot in 1859, the first vineyard bought by the family was the Beaune vineyard, Clos des Ursules, in 1826. After the death of the last male member of the family, long-time manager André Gagey took over the business which was subsequently purchased by the Koch family. Today, the company is run by Pierre-Henri Gagey, assisted by head winemaker Jacques Lardère, who has been responsible for the company’s wines since 1970.
Louis Jadot operates and manages over 60 hectares of their own vineyards, as well as procuring grapes from other growers in the region – controlling a total of 270 hectares in Burgundy. In 1996, Louis Jadot partnered with Tonnellerie Vicard and created its own cooperage called Cadus, which produces French oak barrels crafted in the Burgundian tradition.
