Louis Jadot Beaujolais-Villages Combe Aux Jacques & Bourgogne Chardonnay 20 France Maison Louis Jadot 2010
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.

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.
A rather dull wine from Burgundy. It did not have the fruit I would expect from a beaujolais wine. It felt flat.
Two and a half glasses

Silky and medium-bodied, this red offers sappy cherry and wet earth flavors, with vibrant acidity on the finish. Drink now.
Pour this light, clean, cherry-fruited Beaujolais on a picnic with landjaeger sausages.
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.
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.
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.
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.
