Louis Téte 2000 "Le Pot" Beaujolais Villages ($7.99)
Bright rosy-violet with a reddish tinge. Full and "grapey" fruit aromas add pleasant notes of herbs and spice as it airs in the glass. Fresh and bright flavors, if a bit on the simple side, a characteristic Beaujolais "bowl of fruit." US Importer: Broadbent Selections, San Francisco (Sep 10, 2002)

FOOD MATCH: The wine's ripe and grapey fruit worked nicely with grilled tuna, pairing particularly well with its red-wine reduction sauce.

Wine notes in 'shelf-hanger' format:
We publish Wine Lovers' Page tasting reports in the familiar "shelf-hanger" size and format, to make it easy for wine merchants or collectors to print them out, clip and post them where this wine is displayed. We do ask, however, that the WineLoversPage.com name, logo and URL be left intact, and that these reports be used with the specific wines rated, not different bottlings or vintages.

Our tasting policy:
All my wine-tasting reports are consumer-oriented. In order to maintain objectivity and avoid conflicts of interest, I accept no free samples from wineries or distributors, purchasing all the wines I rate at my own expense in retail stores.
