Beaujolais-Villages 2019

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 2019 vintage was very healthy and quality should be high, a tricky flowering period and hot summer weather have conspired to lower the crop substantially compared to last year. Volumes may be down as much as 30 - 40% in some areas and affects both white and red crops. The year began with a fairly mild winter, and May was very wet. There was some frost in early April but damage was not too extensive overall. June also got off to a cool start which led to an uneven flowering with shatter being a factor in places. The rest of the year was “ideal” but there was next to no rain during the summer months which, on the one hand, has led to superbly concentrated grapes but, on the other, a drastic reduction in volumes.

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.
