About the Wine
The Louis Jadot Chablis is sourced from fruit in different areas of the Chablis region. With this entry-level wine, the focus is purely on the fruit, as the wine sees no oak during its fermentation or maturation.
You'll find lovely notes of citrus and flowers, with bright acidity highlighting the long growing season, and ripe flavours showing the quality of the fruit. While it is a wine at the "regional" level, it shows quite a lot of finesse, and therefore punches well above its weight (and price). It's a great wine to serve chilled with seafood (particularly oysters) and it's usually best drunk when still relatively young.
About Maison Louis Jadot
Maison Louis Jadot is one of the biggest and best known negociants operating in Burgundy and Beaujolais, producing a dizzying array of wines from fruit sourced all over the region. Established in 1859 by Louis Henri Denis Jadot, the business purchases grapes from growers and produces wines under the Louis Jadot name, in what is now a state-of-the-art winery. Since 1985, the business has been owned by Kobrand, a US-based marketer of wine and spirits.
With the distinctive label featuring a depiction of the statue of Bacchus (the Roman god associated with wine and ecstacy) located outside the winery, Louis Jadot bottles are instantly recognisable. Louis Jadot produces wines predominantly from Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, but also Gamay and Aligote, at the regional, village, premier cru, and grand cru level.
