Louis Jadot buys famous Santenay estate

Maison Louis Jadot has announced its acquisition of one of Santenay’s leading estates, Domaine Prieur-Brunet.

The sale sees the négoce house add a further 18 hectares to its portfolio. The new vineyards add the premier cru sites of Maladière and Clos Faubard to Louis Jadot’s growing portfolio of Santenay vineyards, which already include Clos de Malte and Clos de Gatsulards.

In addition, Domaine Prieur-Brunet has small holdings in Chassagne-Montrachet, Meursault, Volnay, Pommard and Beaune.

Louis Jadot said in a statement that it was: “Committed to ensuring the continuity of the work undertaken by the Prieur family over the last two centuries.”

The amount paid for the estate was not revealed.

In addition, it has also been reported that Maison E. Guigal has acquired Domaine de Nalys in the southern Rhône. Nalys owns 50ha of vineyards in Châteauneuf du Pape where it produces both red and white wines and is particularly well-known for the latter.

    Hopefully there will be an allocation of these more affordable Cote de Beaunes for the UK soon!
