In 1859, Maison Louis Jadot was founded by none other than Louis Henry Denis Jadot himself. That was the year he bought the respected négociant firm, Lemaire-Fouleux, and renamed it in his family’s honor. They had set the stage for his business by coming to France from their native Belgium in 1794, and buying multiple premier and grand cru vineyards. You might say that the wine business was his destiny, and he willingly followed the examples of his ancestors. The Jadot family retained control of the Maison, first through Louis Baptiste Jadot, and then Louis Auguste Jadot, the original Louis’ son and grandson. In 1954, Andre Gagey joined the firm as Louis Auguste’s assistant, and took the reins at the request of Louis Auguste’s widow upon her husband’s death. His tenure lasted for nearly 30 years, and he is credited with maintaining the Maison’s reputation. Louis Jadot’s portfolio includes an eclectic mix of wines, from accessible Bourgogne and Beaujolais to several grand crus from Côte de Beaune to Chablis. Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, however, are the dominant wines. The house owns land in many of Burgundy’s most prized vineyards, including Le Musigny, Echézeaux, Chapelle-Chambertin and Clos de Vougeot. Jadot wines are also produced in Le Chambertin, Montrachet, Corton and Romanée-Saint-Vivant.
