Louis Jadot's founder purchased his first hectare of this vineyard in the 1830s. It has long been considered a very fine 1er Cru, producing the quintessential Beaune with enticing perfume, generous fruit with savoury notes and good structure.
Les Theurons' vineyards consist of four parcels descending the slope above the city of Beaune, which divide the northern Premiers Crus from the southern ones.
A season of extreme summer temperatures and one of the hottest and sunniest on record which led to lower yields. However, whilst yields are low, the quality and concentration is outstanding, with wines of great character.
Grapes are vinified in open vats for around 4 weeks, which brings out all the expressions of the terroir.
