August Wine Pick: Louis Jadot Beaujolais-Villages 2015

This WINE PICK of the month was written for the Luke's of Cape Cod website.


I love Beaujolais-Villages. That’s right. I said it. Sure, those from the Cru villages in Beaujolais get all the glory and praise while those that are designated as Beaujolais-Villages don’t get taken too seriously. But, see, that’s EXACTLY why I love them. You shouldn’t get all serious and wine-snobby about Beaujolais-Villages because of its fun and spirited character.

Jadot Beaujolais-Villages is a staple red wine for me when things get hot. Not just because it's low in astringent tannin, but when you give it a slight chill it becomes refreshing and even more bright and expressive than it already was. This wine has a rich body with a soft mouthfeel, aromas and flavors of strawberries and dark cherries, with a peppery and minerally finish. It's simple and happy.

You can pair it with grilled meats or cheeseburgers, but it's also the perfect wine for mac ’n cheese or peanut butter & jelly sandwiches. Please serve slightly chilled.

Price: $12
Rating: 4/5 = Recommended (what does that mean?)
