Beaujolais Villages

Beaujolais Villages – Louis Jadot (France)

This Beaujolais Villages performed well. It wasn’t outstanding, that’s for sure, and probably I wouldn’t recommend it. Unless it’s for someone studying about carbonic maceration. In fact, this wine was exactly as it should be: with its banana and bubblegum flavours you’ll never forget how a Beaujolais should taste.

    I enjoyed this Beaujolais Villages because of its freshness, bubblegum character and lightness. It’s not what we call a “meditation wine” but it’s certainly a good pairing for an aperitif, or a light meal.

    At Louis Jadot they might not be the owners of a romantic little winery but they definitely know what they do, and this is not a simple Beaujolais but a Villages, one step forward to a premium one.

    On the other hand, as mentioned above, it’s a good example of wines with a carbonic maceration character, so it’s a must-drink for whoever is studying about wine production.

    Also, Gamay it’s a great variety to raise your confidence levels: once you’ve tasted a couple of them, if you were paying attention, you might recognise them again in a blind taste. And that’s definitely something we all wannabe wine experts adore.

    Finally, I like Beaujolais. It’s a serious wine often not taken seriously, and I can relate to it.
