Louis Jadot Beaujolais Villages 2018
|Region||France, Beaujolais, Beaujolais Villages|
An easy-drinking wine made with high quality grapes grown in the southern part of Beaujolais. Soils are light, and allow a light, fresh expression of Gamay. The grapes are handpicked in whole bunches and cold soaking is longer than usual for Beaujolais. This fruit-forward, juicy wine has expressive aromas and flavors of strawberries and black cherries with spice notes. Pair with hors d'oeuvres, mild cheeses or poultry dishes.
Bright purple. Black raspberry, cherry and floral and spice nuances on the nose and in the mouth. Shows very good energy and nervy cut. The floral note returns on a nicely persistent, gently tannic finish that leaves a suggestion of allspice behind.
White pepper notes are infused into the blackberry and currant flavors of this light-bodied red. Hints of herb, tea and mineral show on the savory finish. Light tannins. Drink now. 155,000 cases imported.
