Louis Jadot 2002 Beaujolais-Villages ($8.99)
This dark cherry-red wine offers appetizing fresh-fruit aromas, ripe strawberries and juicy red plums on the nose and palate, crisp and clean, without a hint of the weird banana or salad-dressing aromatics that afflict many inexpensive Beaujolais. Good fruit-acid balance and red-fruit flavors remain clean and consistent in a long, fresh finish. US Importer: Kobrand Corp., NYC. (Nov 16, 2003)
FOOD MATCH: Ripe fruit and crisp acidity made it a very good cross-border Franco-Italian match with fettuccine with ragu Bolognese.

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.
