If you’re looking for a special gift for a couple, or a wine connoisseur, I have a Louis Jadot wine gift guide today featuring two different wines. These wines can be purchased as a gift set, with a beautiful wooden crate style gift box for £22 from John Lewis. The gift set contains two half bottles, but you can also purchase both of them individually in the full sizes too. Keep on reading for my Louis Jadot wine gift guide…
Louis Jadot Beaujolais Villages ‘Combe aux Jacques’
“Bursting with ripe, juicy raspberry and cherry fruit flavours. Light bodied, beautifully balanced and truly scrumptious. A premier league Beaujolais Villages and top of the Beaujolais class.
From the tip of Chablis to the toe of Beaujolais, from regional, village, 1ER and Grand Cru wines, Louis Jadot (Est. 1859) makes wines from the length & breadth of Burgundy. The ‘Bacchus’ label being a reliable stamp from this complex region. Beaujolais is the most southern part of the Burgundy region, made up of many villages which are classified for producing fruit that can go into the top Cru wines, Beaujolais Villages or Beaujolais.
This wine includes a high proportion of ‘cru’ (the best of the region) wines making it a grown up Beaujolais. Made at our Combe Aux Jacques winery some of the grapes are destemmed and receive 14 day maceration to maximise flavours. No oak here.”
Louis Jadot Mâcon Blanc Villages
“The majority of the fruit for this wine was sourced from the superior quality vineyards from around the village of Loché, southwest of Mâcon in southern Burgundy. Made in a fresh, clean and fruity style with subtle green apple and pear flavours with a pleasant minerally finish. A nice apéritif, this will also partner white fish dishes well.”
You can purchase both of these wines in the beautiful, giftworthy crate set from John Lewis right here.
