Pinot Noir and the New World – a Burgundian’s perspective.

Video Wine Regions Wine Regions

Pinot Noir is arguably the grape that produces the finest wines in the world and Burgundy is it’s natural home. But with more and more regions in the New World (especially the USA and New Zealand) now producing serious Pinots, I couldn’t resist asking one of the most influential men in Burgundy what he thinks of these wines.

Maison Louis Jadot was founded by Louis Henry Denis Jadot in 1859 and is a family wine company that produces and markets Burgundy wine. It operates both its own vineyards and also buys grapes from many growers. It controls 270 hectares (670 acres) of vineyards in Burgundy (including Beaujolais Crus) and produces only AOC wines.

In 1985 the company was sold to the family of Rudy Kopf, who also own Kobrand, Jadot’s US importer.

I became captivated with the world of wine whilst on a visit to the Barossa Valley during my gap year in Australia. I went on to join a London wine merchant and studied wine for several years before starting my own wine business at 24. I sold the business aged 30 and went into Telecoms for 15 years, during which time I began cooking up the plan to create Mirabeau.
