A cute 37.5cl half bottle of Louis Jadot Beaujolais Villages Combes aux Jacques 2020
This Beaujolais-Villages ‘Combe aux Jacques’ should be drunk quite cool to protect the delicious aromas of fruits and the delicate freshness which is the signature of this wine.
Peter Morrell, Editor, comments “I have tasted this wine, and know that it will be a hit with wine lovers. The wine pours a bright ruby colour, and the bouquet has a basketful of fruit aromas, cherry, strawberry, and plum. On the palate there are oak, tobacco, leather, and spice flavours, with a hint of smoke. The wine is light to medium bodied, and very smooth. A plummy finish with slight minerality signs off this very drinkable wine.”
This Burgundy is perfect with pâté, charcuterie, and lots of crusty French bread. Or mild creamy cheeses on the Christmas cheese board are a great match. And roast beef and other red meats are ideal, too.
From the tip of Chablis to the toe of Beaujolais, from regional, village, 1er Cru and Grand Cru wines Louis Jadot produces Burgundy and nothing but Burgundy. The familiar Bacchus head label has become the reliable stamp of quality and consistency.
