Louis Jadot Beaujolais Rose 2017
Founded in 1859, the house of Louis Jadot has grown and prospered in Burgundy by acquiring and managing exceptional vineyards. They currently own 528 acres of vineyards, including nearly 280 acres of the Cote d’Or’s most prestigious Premier and Grand Cru plots, as well as in Beaujolais and Macon. In Burgundy’s Côte d’Or, where the integrity of the producer can be more important than a renowned appellation or vineyard, Maison Louis Jadot is one of the most trusted and revered wine houses. Jadot’s wine making team, now led by Technical Director Frédéric Barnier, has maintained a balance of tradition and technology in winemaking that allows Jadot’s wines to express the subtle differences between terroirs that are the essence of fine Burgundy.
This dry Rosé is designated a Coteaux Bourguignons, a new appellation created by the Institut National des Appellations Contrôlées in 2011. Made from a selection of Gamay, this is floral and fruity, with fresh red currant and raspberry fruit character. Serve chilled as an aperitif or with salads, pasta dishes, grilled fish, and cold meats.
