Founded in 1859, the Louis Jadot House was founded following the acquisition of the Beaune Premier Cru Clos des Ursules in 1826. Owner of prestigious vineyards, Louis Jadot perpetuates a wealth of know-how that has been handed down from generation to generation, thus offering wine lovers the finest expression of Burgundy.
En l'Ormeau Domaine Gagey by the Louis Jadot House is a Volnay Premier Cru wine that stems from a 0.12-hectare vineyard. The vines are planted on thick clay soils, similar to those found on the famous Premier Cru Bousse d'Or.
Vinification and ageing
Once the grapes have been harvested by hand in small crates, they are sorted by hand and destemmed. Maceration is carried out in open wooden or stainless steel vats for 3 to 4 weeks. Punching of the cap is carried out twice a day during fermentation. Approximately 18 months in barrels made by the cooperage of Louis Jadot, of which 1/3 are new.
Pinot Noir (100%).
Food and wine pairing
This beautiful Burgundian red wine will complement fine and gourmet dishes such as beef tataki, grilled red tuna, fine pieces of veal, noble poultry and hard cheeses.
Serve at a temperature of between 16 and 17°.
This Volnay Premier Cru can be enjoyed until 2026 and has the potential to evolve in the cellar until 2030-2036.
