Louis Jadot Combe Aux Jacques Beaujoulais Villages 2013

Member Review by duncan 906:

I bought this bottle of wine from a shop in Kent. [www.dickenshousewines.co.uk ] for £11.50. The Beaujolais appellation was created in 1936 for red,rose and white wines from 96 communes between the towns of Macon and Lyon. Wine from 39 of trhese communes,mainly in the north,,is allowed to be called Beaujolais Villages.My bottle is a red wine and like all red Beaujolais it is made from the gamay grape,a cross between pinot noir and a white grape called gouais introduced by the Romans.My bottle is from the Louis Jadot concern, a large and well known vineyard owner and negociant house operating in Burgundy and Beaujolais. Their Combe Aux Jacques facility was opened in 1998 near Brouilly and Regnie and makes wine with bought in grapes..I started my bottle last night with my supper of roast pork and I did enjoy it. There is plenty of a blackberry and bramble style fruit with some pepper or spice on the finish. The tannins are soft and it is a very smooth wine.

  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.
