"The 2013 Marsannay Clos du Roy (under the Domaine Gagey label) has more fruit intensity on the nose compared to the Village cru with mulberry, dark plum and raspberry aromas, all very well defined. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin structure, well-judged acidity and a lush raspberry and wild-strawberry finish with just sprinkle of spice. Excellent.” - Wine Advocate
“Here the nose is aromatically similar to that of the Fixin though there is more volume to the delicious and punchy medium weight flavors that possess fine intensity on the rustic, complex, lingering and balanced finish. This moderately structured effort is very Marsannay in character with its minerality and mild rusticity.” - Allen Meadows, Burghound
In Burgundy's Côte d'Or, where the integrity of the producer is often more important than a renowned appellation or vineyard, Maison Louis Jadot is one of the most trusted and revered wine houses. Jadot's esteemed winemaker, Jacques Lardière, and his team have maintained a balance of tradition and technology in winemaking. This allows Jadot's wines to express the subtle differences between terroirs that are the essence of fine Burgundy.
Founded in 1859, the house has grown through a long-term policy of acquisition or management of exceptional vineyard lands, and now owns 528 acres of vineyards, including 280 acres of the Cote d'Or's most prestigious Premier and Grand Cru plots.
