This brilliant garnet wine is bright and fresh, with ripe, supple crushed strawberry flavors underscored by zesty nuances of peppercorns, gentle tannins and a clean acidity, finishing on a succulent, refreshing note.
"Ruby-red. Enticing aromas of raspberry, cherry pie and smoky herbs. Sweet and juicy but tight, with tangy flavors of redcurrant, spicecake and cracked pepper. Finishes brisk and tight, with good clarity. This is quite a bit more serious than the straight Beaujolais, and offers less mainstream appeal; I like its vibrancy and focus."

2009 was the best vintage in Beaujolais for at least the last 60 years. This is your chance to taste the great 2009 vintage without having to shell out a lote of doe. Also, this is the cheaper sister to the Jadot Moulin a Vent which was listed in the Wine Spectator Top 100. One of the secrets with this wine is to put it in the fridge for 10 minutes before serving. I know, it is a red wine but it blossoms with a slight chill. Trust me and try it!

For the price, this wine is a home run - Infinately drinkable red for anytime you're in the mood. Buy a case.
I tried this one with my buddy across the street. It was a very light wine and wonderful in flavor. Did not have a back end bite to it, which I thought was great. I will definitely be buying me more of this wine.
