  Maison Louis Jadot is a winery that’s proud of its heritage and land. Founded in 1859 by Louis Henry Denis Jadot, Maison Jadot expanded rapidly, taking northern Europe by storm. When his son, Louis Jean Baptiste, took over in 1900, more change took place, and many vineyards were acquired, including Corton Charlemagne and Chevalier Montrachet Les Demoiselles. With the help of Rudy Kopf, founder of the Kobrand Corporation, Maison Jadot expanded even further, setting up shop in both England and the U.S. In 1985, Madame Jadot sold the company to Rudy Kopf’s family, ensuring a successful future for the company. The land is very important to Maison Louis Jadot, and making the terroir shine through is always a priority. Maison Jadot identifies with its Burgundy heritage, and all wines are Appellation Contrôlée. The winery controls about 380 acres of land in Burgundy, including Côte d'Or, Mâconnais and Beaujolais. Jacques Lardière, winemaster, works with Christine, Guillaume, and Audrey to ensure that the single-variety wines produced, including Pinot Noir for reds, Chardonnay for whites, and Gamay for Beaujolais, always produce the best, most consistent wines.

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.

Dark cherry flavors balance a light, brisk acidity in this dry, earthy style of Beaujolais. The fruit flavors are gentle and restrained.

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 slightly darker-colored and more serious 1999 Beaujolais-Villages is tighter and more structured. Black cherries and grapes are found in its silky-textured, medium-bodied character. Drink this excellent value between 2001 and 2004.

Light-bodied red and black cherry fruit with a violet note as well. Slightly earthy, firm finish. Drink now.

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.
