A rather dull wine from Burgundy. It did not have the fruit I would expect from a beaujolais wine. It felt flat. Read more
RiceSelect's creamy Arborio gets blended with sweet potato, coconut milk and vanilla to create this decadent cheesecake. Pairs well with Saunternes; a white dessert wine that has hints of coconut from aging in oak barrels.

My Rating 87: This wine is well balanced with a firm acidity backbone. Nose is well balanced with smoky notes. For a good price You should try it. Nothing great but drinkable
Another nice example of Beaujolais. Color is purple, not very dark. On the nose a lot of strawberries and cherries. On the palate silky, red berries continue bursting their aromas into the mouth, a little spicy. Very good wine for summer BBQ or enjoy it on a deck with sunset.

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