Chateau des Jacques / 2017 Moulin-a-Vent

COUNTRY/REGION: France/Beaujolais.

GRAPES: 100% Gamay.

ABV: 13.5%

A very different style of Beaujolais Cru which shows the potential of really well made Cru Beaujolais.

VINEYARDS: Louis Jadot purchased the Château des Jacques estate in Moulin à Vent at the end of 1996. The estate is well known as one of the most prestigious in Beaujolais and is made up of 6 different 'clos' totalling 28.78 ha, which are now all vinified separately.

VINTAGE: The 2017 vintage was very dry, but was relatively cool. Luckily, the frost damage was minimal and a combination of moderate day temperatures and cool evenings resulted in relatively good yield and wonderful flavour concentration.

WINEMAKING: The grapes are de-stemmed and crushed before fermentation and the wine is barrel aged to create a wine with rich and succulent Gamay fruit as well as having the concentration and structure to develop in bottle.
