Louis Jadot Combes Aux Jacques Beaujolais Villages 2010

Louis Jadot Combes Aux Jacques Beaujolais Villages 2010

France, $20

We’ve just finished a multi-page survey of all that is great in Burgundy (look for it in our June Issue) and this week’s selection riffs of that. Beaujolais—and in particular Cru Beaujolais that come from one of 10 designated areas—have been all the rage with sommeliers in the past few years.

But while there are some stars out there, sadly my experience is that given the high prices (often in the $40 range) they attract in Canada, I’d rather spend my money elsewhere—like two bottles of this exquisite bottle from Jadot.

It’s a category down from Cru, Beaujolais Villages, but who cares when you get this fresh, balanced wine with floral and
strawberry notes?
