2019 Chateau des Jacques Moulin-A-Vent Beaujolais
Winemaker Notes: The Moulin à Vent wine is now referred to as the «King of Beaujolais», and is considered to be the most Burgundian Cru of Beaujolais.
The Louis Jadot Moulin à Vent is a full, robust Beaujolais, with a fleshy, almost fat texture and greater longevity than any other Cru of the Beaujolais. The exceptional quality of its structure preserves a fruitiness which becomes mellow with bottle age.
It may be enjoyed after cellaring for 10 years or more (in good conditions of temperature and humidity). Then it will be perfect with red meat or game.
Wine & Spirits - "Blended from three estate parcels at the center of the appellation, this wine includes fruit from Aux Caves vineyard, where 80-year-old vines add concentrated fruit to this wine. It has flavor intensity without weight, the crunchy red-currant flavors lasting with a formal elegance. Gamay, elevated and ageworthy."
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - "Aromas of raspberries, rose petals, warm spices and orange rind introduce the 2019 Moulin-à-Vent, a medium to full-bodied, ample and fleshy wine that's lively and concentrated, with melting tannins and a fragrant finish. It's typical of the seamless, satiny and perfumed style of the 2019 vintage at the Château des Jacques."
