Louis Jadot Beaujolais-Villages 2020-Thinking About Easter Wine Pairings

4/1/2022
Louis Jadot Beaujolais-Villages 2020-Thinking About Easter Wine Pairings I found this wine at Trader Joe's, but I think I could have got it cheaper at a wine shop. Louis Jadot was founded in 1859 as a negiciant and today also has its own vineyards and winery. This has a Beaujolais-Villages designation but it has grapes from all 10 Cru villages. So this is a value-priced French wine with a little bit extra. Check out www.cheapwinefinder.com and listen to the podcast for all the details!
