About the Producer:
In Burgundy’s Côte d’Or, where the integrity of the producer is often more important than a renowned appellation or vineyard, Maison Louis Jadot is one of the most venerable, most trusted and revered wine houses. Jadot’s winemaking team, now led by Technical Director Frédéric Barnier, has maintained a balance of tradition and technology in winemaking that allows Jadot’s wines to express the subtle differences between terroirs that are the essence of fine Burgundy. Though officially retired in 2013, esteemed winemaker Jacques Lardière continues to work in an advisory role and on special projects.
Founded in 1859, the house has grown through a long-term policy of acquisition or management of exceptional vineyard lands and owns 528 acres of vineyards, including nearly 280 acres of the Cote d’Or’s most prestigious Premier and Grand Cru plots.
Ratings & Reviews
94 Points - Wine Enthusiast:
Poised between the lighter wines of the northern Beaune vineyards and the fuller southern vineyards, this premier cru has produced a concentrated wine with tannins that will propel it into long aging. Rich, smoky fruits and juicy acidity add to the ripe, full character of this wine. Drink from 2024.
90 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
The 2016 Beaune 1er Cru Les Theurons offers up an appealing bouquet of ripe cherries, blackcurrants, ripe citrus and wood smoke. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, fleshy and succulent, with an ample core of fruit, satiny tannins and vibrant acids, concluding with a nicely delineated, mouthwatering finish. This is an elegant, charming Beaune.
90 Points - Wine Spectator:
Expressive flavors of cherry, berry, floral and spice signal this elegant red. Balanced, with a vibrant structure and light grip on the earth-tinged finish. Best from 2021 through 2032.
