Tasting note:  Deep in colour, the nose reveals lovely aromas of cherries and dark berries. Maturation in oak has added subtle hints of spice and toast. The tannins are fine-grained and elegant, and the finish is delightfully juicy.

 

Maison Louis Jadot has launched a new wine, Bourgogne Côte d’Or Rouge, with a label designed by students at London’s famous art and design college, Central Saint Martins.

The original piece of label artwork, ‘A tale of terroir,’ captures the essence of Louis Jadot Bourgogne Côte d’Or Rouge with a design highlighting the three elements that make this wine so special: the soils, the landscape and the Climats of the Côte d’Or.  The new wine is produced from vineyard plots bordering the prestigious villages of the Côte d’Or between Marsannay to the north and Maranges to the south.

Last year, following a collaborative project with world-class art and design college Central Saint Martins, students Alice Lengereau and Joel Davies presented their winning label design to Pierre-Henry Gagey, Président of Maison Louis Jadot, whilst on a prize trip to Beaune, Burgundy.
