It was with the acquisition of Beaune Premier Cru Clos des Ursules that the history of Maison Louis Jadot began in 1826. It took Louis Henry Denis Jadot thirty years to found the House in 1859, and to establish the values of this family business. By developing the wine trade in the markets of northern Europe, he was already contributing to the reputation of Burgundy wines at the time. Several generations succeeded each other at the head of the family business, but his signature on the label adorned with the head of Bacchus, with the easily recognizable frieze and color, is still the symbol of the House throughout the world. Maison Louis Jadot now operates 240 hectares in Côte d´Or, Mâconnais and Beaujolais, mainly planted with Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. For almost 200 years, Louis Jadot has paid particular attention to the preservation of the region and its wine heritage. The House has succeeded in bringing together hundreds of plots that have been passed down from generation to generation, in order to guarantee the quality of the wines of this unique terroir. The vine draws its minerality directly from the soil and can defend itself naturally. The work is done by tractor and horse for the less accessible vines, without deep plowing, but with surface actions, imperative to preserve root establishment in depth. The wines of Maison Louis Jadot are AOC wines from the Great Burgundy wine region. It is in this tribute to its craftmen that the philosophy of the house is best expressed: "It is thanks to their work and their passion that we are able to achieve our vision, that is to express a humble Burgundy turned towards the future. And we are fortunate to live in Beaune, with this 16th century cellar, because it reminds us of our history every day. "
