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
Weather: 2015 has been drawn to comparisons to the excellent 2005. A wet winter was needed to replenish the soils that had been left dry from the previous hot, dry summer. Patches of rain throughout the year ensured a freshness in the grapes. The nights were hot in late June and July and as a result saw some fruits fall off the bunches leading to lower yields. The grape structure had thick skins which mean ripe tannins and polyphenols.
Vineyards: Bâtard Montrachet
Grape Varities: 100% Chardonnay
Drink: Now to 2030
Tasting Note: The Puligny Montrachet 1er cru Les Referts has a pale gold colour. The soils give to this wine a very fine structure and mineral character, with fruit, honey and herbaceous aromas. On the palate, the acidity is perfectly balanced and the wine has a good length. This great wine will perfectly match the finest cooking: shellfish, poached fish, strong cheeses like Munster and ripe Comté. In good cellaring conditions, this wine can be kept for 8 to 12 years. .

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.
