No experience with this type of wine, had a 375 the other night at a restaurant, really enjoyed it right out of the bottle. LCBO just released the 2004, they say that the 2005 won't be available for some time. I can get 375's from the local Ontario agent, just wondering how long I should expect this to be able to age (375's and 750's when/if I can get some).
This is a very good Beaujolais and Jadot's other single vineyard wines like Grand Carquelin and Rochegres are even better.
I have had versions of the latter at over 10 years of age that were still developing but I tend to drink even the best of my Moulin-a-Vents [and Morgon - the other good ager] from 5 years although they will keep and develop well much longer than that.
Having said that I have been served these wines [I like even the best of them cool from the cellar] much earlier and they have been great.
Good Beaujolais from people like Jean Foillard, Marcel & Mathieu Lapierre, Pierre-Marie and Martine Chermette [to name only a few favourites alongside Jadot] is VERY underrated and one of its many advantages is that infanticide is painless.
