wonderfully crisp and tart, yet pleasant throughout the palate. very drinkable and soon one is farther into the bottle than intended.
Light, fruity, almost watery, slightly tart, not bitter.
Great dinner/anytime wine. Bouquet: Fruity with hints of cherry. Subtle earth aromas. Palate: Medium-sweet. Slightly crisp. Somewhat smoky with hints of cherry/berries. Medium body. For the price a wonderful value.
A fruity featherweight of a red. Smooth mouthfeel with light tannic grip on finish. Bright acidity throughout - in fact, I found my glass too acidic if not allowed to breathe, though at 2 years after release this Beaujolais is nearing the end of its viable lifespan.
This is fruitier the the beaujolias I have had before. A big hit with my turkey group of red drinkers. Would definitely buy again.
Great nose, floral yet earth. Taste of berries with a long finish. A great value for very good wine.

Found on restaurant lists worldwide, Jadotrsquo;s signature Beaujolais is deservedly considered to be the perfect wine match for every menu. Its pleasant, light fruitiness and gentle texture put almost any food in its best light and provide a refreshing alternative to heavier and sometimes overpowering Cabernets and Merlots.
The broad Beaujolais-Villages Blanc appellation does no justice to this elegant estate Chardonnay, more an unusual white Burgundy with stature and grace. Its light scents are touched by fresh mushroom and a wild fruit aroma that clarifies into kumquat and dried pineapple later in the finish. In the middle, therersquo;s a full, nutty richness that broadens on the palate, held tight along a gunflint edge. The gunflint and the exotic fruit last for minutes, transitioning from an actual taste to a memory. Itrsquo;s not a forceful wine; rather itrsquo;s gentle and distinctive.
Yes, I know Beaujolais Nouveau is out of favor, itrsquo;s yesterdayrsquo;s wine. But this isnrsquo;t Nouveau, this is the real stuff, the original up-front fruity wine. Made from Gamay grape, itrsquo;s packed with strawberries, cherries, and soft, generous fruit. Therersquo;s a slight earthy, mineral touch to it that stops it just being a fruit bomb, and turns it into an easy food wine, especially with salamis, sausages or burgers.
Beaune-based Louis Jadot has upgrades its Beaujolais operations in recent years, seeing an opportunity for growth. The 2002 vintage of its flagship Beaujolais, Chacirc;teau des Jacques, hasnrsquo;t been released yet, but this fine Beaujolais-Villages shows that the commitment to quality is real. The glass overflows with blackberry and black cherry aromas, while in the mouth the wine is clean, fresh and charming.
Light-bodied red and black cherry fruit with a violet note as well. Slightly earthy, firm finish. Drink now.
