Seems a simple distillation hosting a floating purée of raspberry and cranberry. A sniff of smoldering tree bark...

What a marvellous little creature! A very Gamay nose, offering defrosting blueberries, rose petals and fresh bed sheets. The tannins here are just firm enough to add grip and texture, balancing the delicately perched acids. A perfect bottle for late morning drinking or as a fresh pairing with a light lunch.

Almost anything from Louis Jadot is impressive - and this is no exception.

A pleasant entry-level Beaujolais-Villages wine, this is a great way to find out more about the region. While lighter in style, it would never be called wimpy. Cherries dominate on the nose, with some slight wet green leaves. The cherries predominate on the palate, with a slight spiciness (think: green coffee bean).

Versatile with light meat dishes, salmon and a wonderful match with roast chicken with herbs de provence.

Medium-intensity strawberry and cranberry aromas. Spice, cranberry and slightly chalky tannins on the palate. Good acidity for pairing with food. Clean and smooth medium-length finish.

Tasted May/2013 with other Beaujolais BBQ wines listed here:

Gritty, unpleasent tannins as mentioned by few people were the main reason for me not to enjoy it. Add to that higher acidity (despite of serving it at 15C) and it just wasn't to my and my guests liking. Vintage: 2012. Tasted May 2014.
