Maison Louis Jadot acquires Domaine Prieur-Brunet estate in France


Wine maker Maison Louis Jadot has acquired the Domaine Prieur-Brunet vineyard estate in France.

The acquisition includes a 18ha vineyard that is mostly situated in Santenay, with small holdings in Meursault, Volnay, Chassagne-Montrachet, Pommard, and Beaune.

Set up in the 19th century by Claude and Jean Prieur, Domaine Prieur-Brunet is currently operated by Dominique Prieur and her son.

Domaine’s wines are mostly bought by private clients and restaurants.

Maison Louis Jadot’s Santenay vineyard portfolio includes Clos de Malte and Clos de Gatsulards.

"[Jadot] currently produces around 850,000 cases of wine annually."

Maison Louis Jadot was quoted by Thedrinksbusiness.com as stating that the firm was “committed to ensuring the continuity of the work undertaken by the Prieur family over the last two centuries.”

In 2012, Maison Louis Jadot acquired the Château du Chorey’s 17ha vineyards, which had appellations of Chorey-lès-Beaune, Pernand-Vergelesses and Beaune, reported Decanter.com.

According to Winespectator.com, Maison Louis Jadot is yet to decide if the wine derived from newly acquired vineyards will be sold separately or included into its existing brands.

The firm currently produces around 850,000 cases of wine annually from its own vineyards. The latest purchase takes Jadot’s total area of vineyards in its portfolio to 346 acres.
