Moulin-à-Vent La Roche
Appellation Village
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 "La Roche" is quite deep, made of manganese and clay. Very good exposure halfway up the hill. It covers 1.5 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.

The Louis Jadot Moulin à Vent "La Roche" has a nice deep garnet red colour with brilliant tints. It releases a very expressive nose of violet, faded rose and ripened little black fruits. Very nice attack in the mouth with elegant tannins give a sensation of richness. Very good retro-olfaction. 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.
