Côte de Beaune-Villages 2016

Louis Jadot Côte d'Or Burgundies

Côte de Beaune-Villages 2016 play

Region: France / Burgundy / Côte de Beaune Villages
Grapes: 100% Pinot Noir

While grapes of this appellation can be grown in any of the villages of the Côte de Beaune except Aloxe-Corton, Beaune, Pommard and Volnay, the Jadot cuvée is mainly from Chorey-lès-Beaune and Ladoix. The Pinot Noir grapes are destemmed and fermented in open tanks for 25 to 33 days to extract color, tannin and aromas. The wine is then barrel aged for about 12 months before bottling.

harvest note

2016 began with frost, resulting in smaller crops, but the smaller crop allowed for ripening well into September due to cool, dry, and sunny weather. While yields were low, excellent white wines were produced. The 2016 vintage is unfolding to be an amazing one.

tasting note

This young, fruity wine offers aromas and flavors of red berries and cherries, a delicate structure and soft tannins. It is made to be consumed within three to five years of the vintage.

food pairing

Serve with light dishes of meat in sauce, coq au vin or mild white cheeses.
