Jadot’s numerous long-term relationships with wine growers guarantee that the highest-quality fruit is sourced every year from vineyards across the Burgundy appellation. To further elevate the quality, Jadot practices réplis, or declassifying some wines of higher appellations, which are added to the final blend.

Harvest Note
The end of the growing cycle took place during the very hot, dry conditions that prevailed during the month of August. July had seen a few thundery rainstorms here and there, but these were very localized events. Overall, levels of summer rainfall were notably low in Beaujolais. Ripening, therefore, advanced slowly – by the end of August, the berries were still fairly firm, with thick skins. During the visits to the vineyards at the end of August, the grapes were in more or less perfect health, and a generous harvest was promised.
Tasting Note
Purple hue with violet glints. This vintage has intense aromas of red and black fruits (cherries, blackberries). Tannins are well integrated and supported by a vibrant freshness in the finish. It is enjoyable in its youth for its vivid red fruit yet will easily age for 5 years to reveal more subtle floral and spice tones.
Food Pairing
Enjoy with grilled or red meats, roasts, mild game, soft cheeses like Camembert and Brie.
