In a nutshell: An excellent magum of Chablis that's an impressive sight in its wooden presentation box.
The lowdown: From the reliable house of Louis Jadot this is a really elegant wine bursting with white flowers and stone fruit aromas. The palate is nicely round and subtle and leads up to a crisply mineral finish that's altogether very moreish.
When to drink: A perfect apertif wine and partner to canapés, it's also well suited to smoked salmon and, surprisingly, goats cheese.
One of the major negociant houses in Burgundy founded in 1859 by the eponymous Louis Jadot and based in Beaune where their striking, purpose built winery can be found..
While their négociant operations form a major part of what they do they also have significant vineyard holdings of their own stretching through the Cote d'Or to the Maconnais and Beaujolais regions. They also manage additional vineyards in the Côte Chalonnaise.
In recent years their success has in no small part been due to the management of André Gagey and winemaker Jacques Lardière. The wines made from both from bought in and their own grapes have a solid reputation. Their Côte de Beaune reds and whites in particular are among their stand out wines. Following the retirement of Jacques Lardière in 2013 his assistant Frédéric Barnier has taken over the reins and continues to build on the foundations laid by his predecessor.
