Louis Jadot, Beaujolais-Villages
Louis Jadot, Beaujolais-Villages

Beaujolais wines are easy to misinterpret without some fore-knowledge. There are 3 styles of Beujolais: Nouveau, Villages, and Cru. The first, is made to be consumed young and does not have high standards in terms of where it comes from. The "Villages" category can come from one of about 40 vineyards, and has a higher vineyard designation. The final, "Cru," is from one of 10 vineyards in the Beaujolais region of France, and can actually age for a good period of time.

This, like all the Beaujolais wines, is made from the Gamay grape and has light tannins. The nose has a bit of pepper and licorice, along with dark cherry. Ripe fruit and spice is there to be savored, and it goes well with grilled red meat or cheese. Excellent acidity!
