" The bouquet is deep, pure and nicely transparent, wafting from the glass in a complex blend of cherries, sweet cranberries, vinesmoke, a touch of fresh herbs, granitic minerality and just a whisper of cedar. On the palate the wine is full-bodied, pure and very soil-driven, with a lovely core, impeccable focus and balance, just a bit of backend tannin and lovely purity on the long, youthful and tangy finish."
"Atop the hierarchy of Beaujolais Crus are Moulin-à-Vent and Morgon, with notable aging potential. Often called the most “Burgundian” cru, Moulin-à-Vent shows complexity, finesse and length, while Morgon is the most robust and structured. Château des Jacques Moulin-à-Vent can age at least 10-20 years; Morgon can mature a minimum 5-20 years. Purchased by Maison Louis Jadot in 2001, this south- to southeast-facing vineyard is situated on the slopes over the village of Villié Morgon. It covers 87.5 acres of the Morgon appellation, one of the 10 crus of Beaujolais. After vinification, the wine is matured in oak barrels before bottling." - Importer
