Beaujolais-Villages 2017

Region: France / Burgundy / Beaujolais
Grapes: 100% Gamay

Grapes are sourced from the finest vineyards within the Beaujolais-Villages appellation in northern Beaujolais. Louis Jadot practices the quality-driven “replis” method, whereby grapes of higher classifications from the 10 famed Beaujolais Cru villages are added to elevate the blend. The area’s granite and sandy subsoils contain a high percentage of manganese, which produces an especially deep and rich expression of Gamay. Grapes are handpicked in whole bunches and traditional Burgundian methods are used for vinification.

harvest note

The 2017 vintage for Burgundy was strong, however, there were some challenges. Vines flowered late and were affected by frost, resulting in yields below the regional average. Despite that, the grapes were in a perfect state of health, fostered by increased levels of rain in August, by the harvest in early September and were picked when at excellent ripeness levels.

tasting note

This crisp, fruit-forward, juicy wine has expressive aromas and flavors of ripe red berries, with nice weight in the mouth.

food pairing

Light red meats and grilled or roasted white meats.
