Aromas of red fruit. Flavors of red cherry, strawberries, and a touch of pepper. Decent balance with nice acidity and only a hint of tannins- though a bit thin. Should be even better next year.

Good wine for a good price. Get this when you think you want the other Beaujolais in November. Easy drinking Gamay that is not a novelty. Goes with just about any food...try with roast chicken or pork.

The nose is loaded with fresh crushed strawberry and cranberry, and a hint of spice. The medium plus acidity overshadows any tannins. It is fresh and young and the best value among the Beaujolais-Villages. See additional Wine Dine With Us reviews of Beaujolais wines at: http://bit.ly/rsl0cS

Light, drinkable, a wine that I always remember and keep going back to (especially at such a great price). First had it with Thanksgiving dinner, then again the next week with veggie pizza. Possibilities are endless. It is very fresh, not too much acidity. One of my favorites.

Pour this light, clean, cherry-fruited Beaujolais on a picnic with landjaeger sausages.

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

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.

Ruby-red. Enticing aromas of raspberry, cherry pie and smoky herbs. Sweet and juicy but tight, with tangy flavors of redcurrant, spicecake and cracked pepper. Finishes brisk and tight, with good clarity. This is quite a bit more serious than the straight Beaujolais, and offers less mainstream appeal; I like its vibrancy and focus.

Found on restaurant lists worldwide, Jadot'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, there'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. It's not a forceful wine; rather it's gentle and distinctive.

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

Winemaker's Notes:

The long maceration will allow a good extraction. The wine will have a good structure and will therefore be able to age several years. This Beaujolais Villages "Combe aux Jacques" must be drunk quite cool in order to protect the delicious aromas of fruit and the delicate freshness that characterize this wine. Ideal with delicatessen and Italian foods.

Tasting Notes:

Strong red purple color. Fresh red fruits on the nose with a hint of dark cherry. Slightly spicy with a touch of grey pepper, liquorice and a touch of rose flower. The whole wine is very well balanced with a nice acidity and the tannins presence on the finish invites food pairings such as with Terrines, Charcuteries, Grilled red meat, white fish, cheese or simply as the sole wine of a meal.
