France / Burgundy
Fruit for Louis Jadot Beaujolais is grown in the southern part of Beaujolais. Soils are light, and allow a light, fresh expression of Gamay. Long-term contracts with growers ensure top quality fruit comprises the final blend. Louis Jadot’s generous use of “replis,” or blending wines of a higher classification to elevate the blend, promotes quality and value.
2021 was a complicated year in terms of both the weather conditions and the amount of work needed in the vines. The second half of August and the month of September, however, made it possible to retain decent quality grapes, even if the quantity was reduced. The wines can be described as tender and fruity.
This plump, juicy wine has bright aromas and flavors of strawberry and black cherry. It is medium-bodied, with typically high acidity.
Pair with terrines, ham, grilled meat, or BBQ.
GRAPES: 100% Gamay
