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 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 Pierre-Henry Gagey, son of André Gagey, who 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.
Ladoix is a village located to the north of Côte de Beaune, to the north-east of the village called Aloxe-Corton, next to the famous hill of Corton. The altitude is between 220 and 360 m and the exposure is east/south-east. The soil contains clay and marls.

Louis Jadot, Ladoix Blanc Le Clou d’Orge 2017 - fiche technique
The 2017 Ladoix Clos d’Orge Blanc has an appealing, harmonious bouquet of citrus fruit with touches of crushed granite and later, flecks of orange peel. The palate is well balanced, with quite a rich but controlled entry. This Ladoix feels as if it contains a lot of nascent energy, a touch of lemongrass and ginger emerging toward a finish that offers good persistence. Don’t overlook this fine white Ladoix from Jadot.
ABV = 13.0%.
