  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.

Great nose, floral yet earth. Taste of berries with a long finish. A great value for very good wine.

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.

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.

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.

Full and generous dark cherry flavors make this a potent, relatively large-scale Beaujolais. The finish contrasts sweetness with the bite of resinous tannin, offering potential to develop over the next year.

Yes, I know Beaujolais Nouveau is out of favor, it's yesterday's wine. But this isn't Nouveau, this is the real stuff, the original up-front fruity wine. Made from Gamay grape, it's packed with strawberries, cherries, and soft, generous fruit. There'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.
