Winemaker Notes

Meursault is the center of the four communes (Meursault, Blagny, Chassagne and Puligny) comprising that part of the Côte de Beaune known as the «Côte des Blancs», named for the quality and predominance of its white wines.

The vineyards are spread over gentle slopes, between 230 and 360 meters above sea level. The eastern orientation is ideal, allowing maximum sunlight. Chalky soils with white marl are best suited to the Chardonnay grape. The Premier Cru Meursault "Perrières" appellation applies to white wines only.

Maison Louis Jadot produces a rich full-bodied wine, traditionally vinified in oak to yield a well-structured cuvée which balances firmness with ripe fruit flavors. Notes of oak and vanilla in the bouquet are confirmed on the palate and carry into a sustained finish.

The strength and suppleness of Meursault make these wines ideal partners for food which is both rich and spicy, hot or cold : foie gras, fish in a cream sauce, shellfish in a sauce, poultry with cream, blanquettes, strong cheeses.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
TA 94
Tim Atkin

These vineyards are high for Meursault, located at 300 metres, and it shows in the zip,

vivacity and citrus crunch of the palate. Orange zest and lemon tart flavours are nicely

framed by vanilla spicy oak, with chalky acidity driving the wine towards its stylish finish.

2020-28.

D 93
Decanter
2016 is the first vintage that Jadot have produced a Meursault Perrières from their own vines, having recently acquired this parcel. The wine is lovely, offering up aromas of citrus zest, spring flowers and chalky soil tones, followed by a full-bodied, concentrated palate impression with good depth and a taut, minerally finish.

RP 93
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
From bottle, the 2016 Meursault 1er Cru Les Perrières (Domaine Louis Jadot) is showing very well, unfurling in the glass with notes of waxy lemon rind, crisp pear, crushed chalk and white flowers. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, elegantly textural and tensile, with a bright line of acidity and a long, stony finish.
BH 92
Burghound.com
Distinctly cool, pure and reserved aromas require aggressive swirling to liberate the aromas of mineral reduction, apple, spice and acacia blossom. The equally pure and restrained flavors flash ample minerality that continues onto the ultra-intense, sleek and long finale that is notably dry but not so much so that it cuts the finish short. I suspect that this will round out if given a few years of cellaring first.
Range: 90-92

Meursault

View all products

Known to offer a magical balance of smoothness and freshness, Meursault's quality is hard to rival. The village lies in the middle of Côte de Beaune, just south of Volnay. Meursault is said to mean “mouse’s jump” because in the past the plots producing Pinot noir and those producing Chardonnay were no more than a mouse’s jump from one another. Today the village is almost exclusively Chardonnay. A tiny bit of Pinot noir is produced here with the best coming from Les Santenots on its northern side near Volnay.

While there are no Grands Crus, Meursault’s numerous acclaimed Premiers Crus can compete with any other top-notch white Burgundy. Some to know are Les Perrières, Les Genevrières, Les Charmes, Le Poruzot, Les Bouchères and Les Gouttes d’Or.

Meursault produces outstanding village level wines as well. In general great Premiers Crus and even village level Meursault (Chardonnay) have enticing aromas of lime peel, tropical fruit, crushed rocks, spice and hazelnut. On the palate there is a wonderful balance of brightness and a seductive length with flavors of white peach, pineapple and citrus.

Chardonnay

View all products

One of the most popular and versatile white wine grapes, Chardonnay offers a wide range of flavors and styles depending on where it is grown and how it is made. While practically every country in the wine producing world grows it, Chardonnay from its Burgundian homeland produces some of the most remarkable and longest lived examples. As far as cellar potential, white Burgundy rivals the world’s other age-worthy whites like Riesling or botrytized Semillon. California is Chardonnay’s second most important home, where both oaky, buttery styles and leaner, European-inspired wines enjoy great popularity. Oregon, Australia and South America are also significant producers of Chardonnay.

In the Glass

When planted on cool sites, Chardonnay flavors tend towards grapefruit, lemon zest, green apple, celery leaf and wet flint, while warmer locations coax out richer, more tropical flavors of melon, peach and pineapple. Oak can add notes of vanilla, coconut and spice, while malolactic fermentation imparts a soft and creamy texture.

Perfect Pairings

Chardonnay is as versatile at the table as it is in the vineyard. The crisp, clean, Chablis-like styles go well with flaky white fish with herbs, scallops, turkey breast and soft cheeses. Richer Chardonnays marry well with lobster, crab, salmon, roasted chicken and creamy sauces.

Sommelier Secret

Since the 1990s, big, oaky, buttery Chardonnays from California have enjoyed explosive popularity. More recently, the pendulum has begun to swing in the opposite direction, towards a clean, crisp style that rarely utilizes new oak. In Burgundy, the subregion of Chablis, while typically employing the use of older oak barrels, produces a similar bright and acid-driven style. Anyone who doesn't like oaky Chardonnay would likely enjoy its lighter style.
