The villages and growths of Burgundy are individually expressed in each of the wines that carry the Louis Jadot label. Vines are carefully pruned during their dormant winter phase, crucial to regulating yields and optimizing quality. Maison Louis Jadot believes that the only way to truly respect grapes is to harvest by hand. On the sorting table, only the ripest and healthiest berries are selected. Combe aux Jacques is crafted to the classic Beaujolais style with a semi carbonic maceration. Fruit is kept for long periods in open wooden vats to extract colour and tannin. Components are vinified in the Louis Jadot winery at Combe aux Jacques, to be assembled with finished wines sourced from dedicated local growers.
Light ruby red. Combe aux Jacques should be consumed lightly chilled to preserve the exciting bouquet and freshness of palate. A long maceration provides good extraction of colour and tannins, building structure to assist bottle development. Ideal with cured meats, pasta and risotto.
