Impression of Louis Jadot Beaujolais-Villages, 2005
This wine is not serious nor
is it meant to be. This is just a fun wine to drink for
informal celebrations and above all it is the perfect wine for
Thanksgiving. Try this with cranberry sauce, turkey and
sweet potatoes and you will just love it.
In fact this is one of the
best Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner wines there is and it is a
tradition as such for many. It is very easy to drink and
unlike most reds it is at its' best well chilled, not cold mind
you but very close to the temperature you would serve a white
It is not something I would
want to drink everyday because it is so fruity and honestly far
to easy to drink to much of to fast if you are not enjoying
enough food to counter the effects. Still at 8 bucks it is
one of the true gems and if you are really trying to get a white
wine drinker to give a red a fair shot this one is probally a
great first step. Personaly it would be a very odd day
that I turned down a glass of this one.
Flavors are Most Dominant or Evident In This Wine?
There is almost enough
strawberry to make you wonder if they drop a few into the vats
when they crush the grapes and it is just wonderful. The
color is garnet and I know it is a cliche to call a wine, grapey
but this wine is none the less quite grapey. The wine is
simple and complex at the same time if you take the time to pick
it apart. There are nice earth aromas and flavors in it
probally from the slate soil the Gamay grapes are grown in.
foods will this wine go well with?
As mentioned above this is a
perfect match for Thankgiving Turkey and the rest of a
traditional meal. Yet there are a lot of other good fits,
you certainly could enjoy it with steak so long as it was a full
meal with veggies and not just meat and potatoes if so it will
probally not hold up. Light meals will fit perfectly like
when you want red wine but you want to eat simple chicken or
fish meals this one will do well. It is also nice as an
after dinner night cap on its' own. This wine is just
plain fun, if you think it will go with something try it you
probally won't be disapointed.
Grapes are In Louis Jadot Beaujolais-Villages, 2005?

Who Is Going to Enjoy This Wine?
If you don't like this one you
probally won't drink any red wine at all, I will leave it at
Does the Bottle or Vintners Web Site Say About this Wine?
Nothing worth noting, perhaps
if the French would learn to communicate with their marketing a
bit better they would do better in reaching the general US
