Louis Jadot (375ml), 2016, Beaujolais Villages «Combe aux Jacques»

Red, Old World, Gamay from Beaujolais, France



In 1985, in order to ensure the company's future, Madame Jadot decided to sell the company to the family of Rudy Kopf, Jadot's US importer.

In order to achieve the best possible quality they have, for the past 20 years, banished all use of synthetic products (fertilisers, herbicides, etc) on their vineyards soils and have taken up traditional practices instead. Their work is done either by tractor or, for the most inaccessible vineyards, by horse. They don't work their soil deeply but prefer to concentrate on surface actions in order to preserve its innate structure. They encourage their vines to grow their roots in such a way as to enable them to mine the soil's minerality.

The Beaujolais Villages "Combe aux Jacques" is vinified the same as the other wines from the region: with a semi carbonic maceration. The long maceration will allow a good extraction. The wine will have a good structure and will therefore be able to age several years.

Jadot's Beaujolais Villages yield comes from three sources. One portion comes from the Régnié cru, another portion they purchase from quality wine makers, and the last portion they purchase grapes and vinify them in their winery in the south of Beaujolais. Louis Jadot is the only negociant buying grapes and vinifiying them independently.

This Beaujolais Villages "Combe aux Jacques" must be drunk quite cool in order to protect the delicious aromas of fruit and the delicate freshness that characterize this wine; fresh, full of fruit, light easy drinking, goes well with tomato based dishes.
