Louis Jadot Brouilly 2008
Maison Louis Jadot was founded in 1859 by Louis Henry Denis Jadot. He quickly developed a reputation as a high quality producer and his aim was to build his reputation as a top quality winemaker in Burgundy. To achieve this aim he continued to purchase vineyards to add to the family's earlier purchase of Beaune Clos des Ursules and Chevalier Montrachet Les Demoiselles vineyards. His Grandson, who took over at the end of WWII continued to build Louis Jadot's Domaine holdings by acquiring Grand Cru vineyards in Corton Pougets and Corton Charlemagne. Made with 100% Gamay grapes, our "cuvée" comes mainly comes from the Rhône and Saône-et-Loire region. The terroir is composed of granite as well as clay and calcareous. The Beaujolais Villages "Combe aux Jacques" is vinified the same as the other wines from the region: with a semi carbonic maceration. 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. Enjoy this fantastic red with delicatessen and Italian foods.
