At this time of year the palate starts to crave refreshing wines that match the seasonal menus and attire. Red wines that are full bodied are fine for big food dishes, bbq’s or cooler nights, but having wines made from the Gamay grape is a good strategy.
The Louis Jadot Beaujolais-Village 2016 is a very fine wine that will please summer red wine lovers. It can be chilled down a little without losing its characteristic fresh red fruit flavours. Gentle tannin and lovely raspberry, blackcurrant and cherry fruit. A lighter fresh wine that is perfect for the terrace.
Dream food combination: Picnics, salads, charcuterie etc. Versatile wine.
Good value too at £11.99 from Waitrose: https://goo.gl/LdWbxD
