Louis Jadot is a big négociant of Burgundy wine. The offices are in the heart of Beaune (Bourgogne) and the main winemaking facility is on the outskirts of town. Being a négociant they make wine from grapes (or possibly wine) bought in from other wine producers, but more importantly they also own, or run, several wine estates directly.
The Maison Louis Jadot (with the Domaines Louis Jadot) makes wine from a large number of appellations along the Burgundy slopes. They make plain Burgundy, Beaujolais, commune wines in the Cote d'Or up to several different grand cru wines. In addition they own a cooper (wine barrel maker) called Cadus.
The Louis Jadot winery is on the edge of Beaune and was built only a few years back. It is equipped with the latest vinification equipment but retains many of the traditional techniques too. On ground level in the winery there is the famous circular cellar with a range of fermentation and storage vats, but in wood and in stainless steel. Underground is a vast cellar with many hundreds of oak barrels for aging the wine in wood.
The vineyards are spread out over the whole of Burgundy. They are mainly managed in culture raisonnée. Some experiments with biodynamics are ongoing. The grapes are the classic Burgundy grapes: chardonnay, pinot noir, gamay (in Beaujolais).
