I have been trying to find a white Beaujolais from Mason Louis Jadot. Has anyone tried it and is it worthy?

Chateau des Jacques (which is owned by Louis Jadot) "Grand Clos de Loyse Beaujolais Blanc" is worth finding. & the Louis Jadot (labeled as such) "Domaine Aux Loops". Let me know if you want more info, I can look for my notes. K

hi, i found a bottle of this wine, chateau des jacques' beaujolais-villages blanc w/the title "grand clos de loyse". i THINK it's the one you're talking about. i'm new to wines and have no idea what to drink this with and if it should be drunk now or if it can/should wait (it's 1997). i hope you won't think it's a waste on a newbie if it's good, but could you tell me what you honestly think and what to do with it?

Yours and 99% of the other 1997 white in the world should be consumed at the soonest. Try it with sauteed chicken breast in a light sauce.

I had the '99 of this wine. It is indeed a very nice chardonnay for the bucks. IK is right, drink that '97 now.
