I pre-ordered 2 cases of cru beaujolais based upon the reviews I've been reading. And when I found the Louis Jadot 2002 Beaujolais Villages in the store I bought a few bottles.
first one - sour and tart. Tasted like the awful 2001. Give me a cheap Australian blend instead.
second one - Ambrosia! Nice fruit -blackberry and raspberry with a little garnish of chocolate. More body that usual for a beaujolais. A little structure to support it. Everything one would want from a beaujolais. As good as some of the 2002 crus.
third and fourth bottles - nasty. sour and tart.
What has your experience been? Was the 2nd bottle an anomaly for this label? Is Louis Jadot sticking 2002 labels on the last of the 2001's? Am I going to regret my two cases of George DuBoeuf crus?
