Overview of the Wine
Louis Jadot is one of the largest and most famous wine producers and negociants in the Burgundy wine-growing region. The origins of the company date back to 1859 when the business was fouded by Louis Henry Denis Jadot. Over time the company has acquired plots of vines is some of the most prestigious vineyards in the region including Beaune Clos des Ursules, Chambertin Clos de Bèze, Savigny Les Beaune and many more. Louis Jadot owns or directly controls 120 ha in the Côte d’Or, including over 90 individual vineyard sites, 84ha in the Beaujolais Crus and 18ha in the Mâconnais primarily in Pouilly Fuissé. Today the business is headed 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.

92 Points - Wine Enthusiast
This is a dense wine with great tannins and black fruits. It has concentration and ripe berry flavors, with a youthful vigor that will allow it age well.
89-91 Points - Allen Meadows
A distinctly cooler and more restrained nose reluctantly offers up a layered mix of red and dark pinot fruit that is trimmed in enough wood to warrant pointing out. There is both good volume and vibrancy to the well-detailed flavors that exude a discreet bead of minerality onto the mildly rustic finale. This too will need at least a few years of forbearance as it's presently pretty tightly wound.
88-90 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Outer quote mark Aromas of cassis, wild berries and peony introduce the 2017 Pernand-Vergelesses 1er Cru Clos de la Croix de Pierre (Domaine des Héritiers Jadot), a medium to full-bodied wine that's ample, fleshy and succulent, with melting tannins and a nicely delineated finish.
