Tasting Note

Maison Louis Jadot practices traditional oak vinification to yield a full-flavored yet graceful wine of exceptional balance and breed, with complex, distinctive aromas typical of Puligny which carry onto the palate and into the persistent, lingering finish.

Food Pairing

Great white wines like this are a great match with haute cuisine, in the wine’s noble aromas and the clarity, finesse and elegance of its flavors. Shellfish cooked in a court-bouillon, creamed and poached fish, poultry liver pâtés, and ripe cheeses like Munster and mature Comté are all excellent companions.

About the Grape

Chardonnay
Though it has a distinctive profile, Chardonnay reflects other factors such as soil composition and vinification technique. Chardonnay is a reliable, hardy and prolific vine whose only real vulnerabilities are frost and uneven development of fruit.
