Domaine Louis Jadot
Savigny Lès Beaune 1er Cru La Dominode 2015, Domaine Louis Jadot
France / Burgundy
Andy's Tasting Notes
One to keep till 2023 to 2030. Arguably the finest Premier Cru in Savigny producing classic, structured Burgundy which in great vintages, like 2015, require patience and understanding. Lovely red fruits with a delicious crunchy mineral core. This will be lovely – just don’t open it yet!
Savigny les Beaune is a wine-growing village par excellence, to the north of and adjacent to Beaune. The vineyard faces south / south-east, east and north-east. It is situated at a height of between 220 and 360m. The chalky soils are gravely or stony, light and not very fertile. Situated on Mont-Battois, on the edge of the Beaune vineyard, facing north-east, the ‘La Dominode’ premier cru (‘Vine of the Lord’) lies on a sandy, slightly pebbly soil, within the Hautes Jarrons 1er Cru vineyard.

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 Henry 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.
