The Wines of Burgundy – with Maison Louis Jadot


The Louis Jadot name, as well as its readily identifiable label should be very familiar, even to casual wine lovers. Established by Louis Henry Denis Jadot in 1859 in the Burgundy region of France, Maison Louis Jadot has grown over the past 150 years to own 280 acres of the Côte d’Or’s most prestigious Premier and Grand Cru plots.

In 2010, chief winemaker Jacques Lardière retired after 42 years with Louis Jadot. Taking over the reins from Monsieur Lardière, winemaker Frédéric Barnier has been responsible for the entire winemaking team of Maison Louis Jadot since 2010.

Join us as we talk with Technical Director Frédéric Barnier about the challenges he’s faced, including the past few “short” vintages in Burgundy, current pricing, and the premox issue.

    It was really hard to understand Frédéric and so made it hard to enjoy this podcast. I have gotten so much more from Allen Meadows on your Burgundy podcasts.

    Hi Neal,

    I’m sorry you didn’t get more out of the podcast. I would encourage you to listen again, as I do find that one’s ears tend to become more attuned to foreign accents after multiple passes.

    As to Mr. Meadows, he is undoubtedly one of the most informed and articulate individuals on the subject of Burgundy that we’ve recorded.
