Louis Jadot Beaujolais-Villages 2010 – Wine Review
Maison Louis Jadot was founded in 1859 by Louis Henry Denis Jadot, but the family had purchased vineyards of the Clos des Ursules, a Beaune Premier Cru in 1826. The philosophy behind Maison Louis Jadot is to allow each appellation within the region of Burgundy in which the grapes are grown to reflect the outcome of the wine in each bottle. The terroir of each appellation is unique, which allows the wines to express those differences in the final product.
The 2010 Louis Jadot Beaujolais-Villages is a wonderful light red wine, produced using the Gamay grape variety. The color in the glass is a soft-red color, with aromas of cherries and red raspberries. The flavors are of tart cherries, red raspberries, strawberries, and a slight hint of anise. This is a light, easy to drink red wine, with good acidity, light tannins, and a short finish.
