1989 Louis Jadot, Meursault - Bourgogne - 3 Bottles (0.75L)

Expert Olivier Baret's Selection

Three incredible bottles of Louis Jadot Meursault from 1989!! The 1989 vintage for Burgundy was very good, excellent even.

A mild winter gave way to a mild spring and an unusually cold April and May, the latter getting frost and a bad hailstorm. June was also cool with hot, dry weather only really arriving in July. The harvest was ripe, rich and generous for both reds and whites. The top-performing appellations of the vintage for reds included Pommard, Nuits-Saint-Georges, Vosne-Romanée, Savigny-lès-Beaune and Pernand-Vergelesses. For whites, Meursault and Puligny were also very good. However, there will be many great wines from appellations not mentioned here.

Louis Jadot is one of Burgundy's most important wine producers and négociants, both qualitatively and quantitatively, with a portfolio that covers everything from inexpensive Bourgogne and Beaujolais wines to several grand cru wines, from the Côte de Beaune to Chablis. Unsurprisingly, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay feature heavily in the portfolio.

The house was founded in Beaune in 1859 by Louis Jadot, although the first vineyard – Clos de Ursules – was purchased in the 1820s. The headquarters remains in Beaune, although vineyard holdings have increased exponentially. Louis Jadot owns land in some of Burgundy's most famous vineyards, including Le Musigny, Échezeaux, Chapelle-Chambertin and in the famously fragmented Clos de Vougeot vineyard. Louis Jadot wines are also made in Chambertin, Montrachet, Corton and Romanée-Saint-Vivant.

As well as the sizeable portfolio of wines made under the Louis Jadot label itself, the house also makes wines for Domaine du Duc de Magenta, and for Domaine Gagey. Andre Gagey took over as general manager for Louis Jadot in 1968 and, along with winemaker Jacques Lardière, was often held responsible for building Jadot's high reputation in the 70s and 80s.
