Louis Jadot Côte de Beaune Villages 2010 - Tasting note

cotes-du-beaune

A tasty benchmark Côte de Beaune Village from a trusted producer. This wine from the Côte d’Or has lovely aromas of cherry and and other forest fruits. To taste it has a good acidic bite which is perfect for classic rustic French servings of cheese and pate. 

Very enjoyable and perfect for dinner parties or charcuteries.
