Wood Wine Crate & Box Profiles: Louis Jadot

Country: France

Region: Burgundy

Sub-region: Beaune

Classification: Grand Cru

Production: Varied based on the single vineyard

Grape: Pinot Noir for Reds

Crate design: The Louis Jadot logo is a very high detail picture. The design is of the ancient Greek "Head of Bacchus", and has become one of the most recognizable aspects of the Louis Jadot label.

Rarity: Uncommon. The Louis Jadot label is comprised of over 100 single vineyards on the same property, and most of these single vineyards have a small prodution. Since the Louis Jadot label is so attractive, most wine collectors who acquire a case of the wine with the crate usually keep the whole package.

Crate designation: Exclusive Class ($50.00)

Our opinion: Louis Jadot was my first personal favorite. I keep a small collection, and have all the Louis Jadot crates from every single vineyard that produces them. The wines are excellent as well!
