The House of Louis Jadot has been producing exceptional Burgundy wines since its founding in 1859 by Louis Henry Denis Jadot. For the past 150 years Louis Jadot has continued as one of the great names of Burgundy and has gained international reputation for its superb red and white Burgundy wines. Louis Jadot is not only one of the largest producers of estate Burgundies of the Cote d'Or, it is one of the most celebrated exporters of premium Burgundies, owning close to 140 acres of vineyards from 24 of the most prestigious sites in Burgundy.
Marsannay is the only village in Burgundy where white, red and rose wines are all permitted to be produced as appellation wines. The northernmost commune of the Cote d'Or, lying on the outskirts of the city of Dijon, three miles north of Gevrey Chambertin, Marsannay was granted its own A.O.C. appellation in 1987. This rose is from Jadot's Domaine Clair-Da? estate, where the grapes are destemmed and then macerated for a short time in order to get a light pink color. This wine stays then in stainless steel tanks before bottling. Bright, crisp and refreshing with wild strawberry, ripe peach and floral notes accentuated by tangy, stony mid-Jurassic soil nuances, we tasted and loved this wine!
