Red
100% Gamay Grapes

Maison Louis Jadot bought the Château des Jacques in 1996. It is situated in Moulin à Vent, between Fleurie and Chenas, and has a 27 ha vineyards of ‘Moulin à Vent'. The 5 ‘Clos' cover an average of 19.5 hectares. 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.

Geological origin and soil composition are quite different from the Côte d'Or. This is why the Beaujolais red wines are only made of Gamay grapes. The soil from the "Clos du Grand Carquelin" is quite light, made up of sand and a little bit of clay, lying on a bedrock high in manganese. This helps give the wine its deep colour. It covers 5 hectares.

The wine is vinified in closed vats with pumping over, and then aged in oak barrels for 12 months. One part of the grapes are de-stemmed.

Exquisite colour, deep cherry red. Releases powerful aromas, of lush red fruit and spices, both elegant and dense. The taste is abundant, tannins are well-formed despite their youth, at once harmonious, delicate and impressive. A wine of the highest standard, with a full, fleshy fruit character. This wine will perfectly match red meats in sauce, game and most cheeses.

This wine will be able to age 10-20 years if kept in good conditions of humidity and temperature.
