Louis Jadot 2007 Beaujolais-Villages (France)
Beaujolais has gotten itself a bad name over the years because of the nouveaus that come out in November; but a well made Beaujolais is tasty and wonderful under the right circumstances. Tonight I was looking for something easy to drink and not to taxing on the palate, so I opened this Beaujolais-Villages and it delivered in spades. Big cherry and spice on the nose and a continuation of the same on the palate. This is the wine for non-red-wine drinkers, and those looking for a simple red - either party should enjoy this wine immensely.
