A juicy berry-flavoured wine from Louis Jadot, one of the best of the larger producers in Burgundy. A definite step up from standard Beaujolais, with greater intensity and structure but still maintaining the attractive fruit. This extra intensity makes the wine a good partner to quite highly flavoured dishes.
Lying in the southern limits of Burgundy, Beaujolais is the largest single wine district within the region. The light, low tannin reds for which Beaujolais is famous are created mainly from the Gamay grape, with the vines often trained in the 'goblet' style. This traditional method of growing vines dates back to Roman times, when viticulture was first introduced to Beaujolais.
There are 12 main appellations of Beaujolais wine, covering the production of more than 96 villages in the region. The broadest of these is Beaujolais AOC, which is allowed to be used throughout the region. Most of these wines are sold as Beaujolais Nouveau.
