People underestimate Beaujolais true beauty when they base it off of the Nouveau. This Village from Louis Jadot is an oldie but goody. 2012, 100% Gamay. Medium/light bodied, nose of lavender fields some crushed ripe cherries. Smooth and elegant on the palate. Finish is short n dry. Good entry into the genre, always makes for a good Thanksgiving wine. Low alcohol which makes it pair well with this cheese plate.

First Beaujolais I've tried. Light and not too sweet, paired nicely with thanksgiving food.

Very bright and expressive Beaujolais. Ripe strawberries and plums with a hint of spice. Great young Burgundy red!
