  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.

To me this was just short of good; it lacked fruit. Came across as not only light but thin, lacking body or character and overall was very unimpressive, even for the money.

This is a pleasant and affordable Beaujolais. My biggest gripe with the grape is that it seemed a touch to watered-down for my taste. Perhaps I made the mistake of pairing this wine with a New York Strip. Next time I'll try it with chicken or perhaps turkey for Thanksgiving. Still, the wine is smooth and enjoyable.

After reading the reviews I wasn't sure what to expect. I agree with the smooth and light. i had just finished a Pinot Noir and the difference in texture was clear. While I prefered the Pinot, this was a good wine for the price.

I was expecting more, but it was fine for a light red, I'm sure if I were pairing it with food instead of just having a glass, it would fair better. I still prefer my Pinot Noir. Maybe a different year would taste better.

Perfect to be paired with a good pork dish, we enjoyed it with Bacon wrapped Shrimp and Creamy Polenta.

This vinification process will allow nice fresh redcurrant and raspberry fruit character. This Beaujolais Rose can be drunk quite chilled as an aperitif.
