Here’s the deal: Jadot, as a large negociant, sometimes gets the rep amongst us wine people that it’s not as authentic as the small, grower producers. The reality is this: their wines these days are every bit as authentic as any in Burgundy. And while they may not have the story of the small farmers, the wines are not only correct, they can be, at time, pretty fantastic. This particular wine is not fantastic. However, it is a very good example of Beaujolais-Villages and quite tasty. This vintage is darker in color and more dark fruited than some past vintages I’ve had but still, a Beaujolais through and through and more than hits the spot. I dig this and I can dig Jadot.

Easy drinking and fairly well balanced. Very enjoyable and perfect with pizza

Bramble fruit, wild cherry, modest spice aromas; cherry cola and continued spice in the palate - good QPR #beaujolaisvillages for ~$10 at Costco.

Smooth, somewhat sweeter than I normally drink but a great wine I could enjoy anytime.

This is a spicier red with some mineral and subtle cherry tastes. Has more tannin than expected but not too overpowering.

Sweeter than we usually go for, but an easy red for warmer days.

French. Red. Provençal.
Very good, light red wine. Good flavor, a bit fruity with cherry and strawberry, not too strong. Was $11 at local store. Had with Provençal ratatouille. Had it a bit chilled.
