Louis Jadot Côte de Beaune Villages 2016
|Region||France, Burgundy, Cote de Beaune|
This ripe, full wine is a blend of parcels across the Côte de Beaune. Its rich tannins and full berry fruits are generous, cut with juicy acidity and supported by a core of tannins. Drink from 2022.
The 2016 Côte de Beaune-Villages (Maison Louis Jadot) is produced from purchased wine, and it isn't as integrated as the wines Jadot vinifies in house. Aromas of creamy new oak vie with juicy red fruits for the taster's attention, followed by a medium-bodied, fleshy but rather simple palate, with melting tannins and tangy acids. It's not bad, but there are many better reds in the range.
