ABOUT MAISON LOUIS JADOT
All the wines made under the Maison Louis Jadot label are Appellation d’Origine ContrÃ´lee wines from across the region. Maison Louis Jadot controls over 500 acres scattered across Burgundy, from the CÃ´te d’Or to the MÃ¢connais and down into Beaujolais.
ABOUT E. GUIGAL
The Guigal Estate was founded in 1946 by Etienne Guigal in Ampuis, a small ancient village and cradle of the CÃ´te-RÃ´tie appellation. It shelters a unique vineyard where the vines and the wines have been famous for 2,400 years. Arriving in 1924 at 14 years old, the founder vinfied 67 harvests in CÃ´te-RÃ´tie and, at the beginning of his career, took part in the development of Vidal-Fleury establishment. In 2007, the release of the 2003 vintage of Guigal’s “La La” wines set the record for most expensive release of any Rhone wine, with bottles retailing for as much as $800.
ABOUT MAISON VIRGINIE
Since 1989, vignerons and oenologists have been working side by side to develop and improve their products so that consumers are offered only the very best. The Castel Family discovered Domaines de Virginie in 1999 as part of a quest to capture the individuality of France’s different winemaking areas, and quickly brought it into the Castel fold. The name was subsequently changed to Maison Virginie: a modern house, on a human scale, with its own state of the art winery.
