FRANCE: Louis Jadot opens new winery
Burgundy wine producer Louis Jadot has opened a new winery in the region, which it claims will improve traceability for its wine.
Jadot began work on the 6,000hl winery in January this year. The facility is situated in the heart of southern Burgundy's Côte Châlonnaise and will primarily be used for the group's Bourgogne Pinot Noir wine.
Group president Pierre Henry Gagey said the winery would give the firm "greater control" over its wine from vine to bottle.
The cost of the new winery was not disclosed.
Global exports of Burgundy wines declined by 9% in volume and 1.9% in value in the first half of 2008, figures released this week by the region's wine trade body show.
