Regarding the structures of its supply
agreements with growers throughout Burgundy, there is no binding contract or
any obligation to buy the fruit. Selection is made purely on quality, working
closely with its suppliers and lending advice when required. Jadot pays a
premium for its grapes (typically the same price a producer sells finished
wine) in order to have continuity of supply and the best fruit. Buying the
grapes at this early stage (versus must or wine) also provides Jadot with more
control over quality.
