The Story

From the tip of Chablis to the toe of Beaujolais, from regional, village, 1er Cru and Grand Cru wines Louis Jadot produces Burgundy and nothing but Burgundy. The familiar Bacchus head label has become the reliable stamp of quality and consistency for wine lovers worldwide, from what can often be a confusing region.

Louis Henri Denis Jadot founded the business in 1859. His vision was to build a business with a high quality reputation. One of his key aims, as well as to make top wines, was to build a significant vineyard base. This vision remains core to the business today.

Today, the business is headed up by Thomas Seiter who succeeds Pierre-Henry Gagey in the role that the latter has held for 31 years. His father, André Gagey, was entrusted with the management of Louis Jadot in 1962 by Madame Jadot following the tragic death of her son, Louis Auguste Jadot. Pierre-Henry is a passionate believer in terroir, allowing the wines to present the very essence of Burgundy.
