Winemaker's Tasting Notes
2018: Its strong bouquet enchants with red and black and fine spicy notes. The full-bodied and juicy taste has the structure and power typical of a Jadot Moulin-à-Vent. On the palate there are full-fruity nuances of raspberries, blackberries and blackcurrants. The fruit fullness of vanilla, cedar wood and a fine smoke note is underlaid. The tannins are fine-grained and well integrated into the body. The persistent and long finish reveals all the promising potential of this Cru Beaujolais.
Aromas of blackberries, violets, candied peel and spices introduce the 2018 Moulin-à-Vent, a medium to full-bodied, fleshy wine with succulent acids, a generous core of fruit and fine, powdery tannins. This is a pure and generous, comparatively fruit-driven wine from the Château des Jacques.
Pureed black cherry and raspberry notes are backed by plush tannins and vivid acidity. Rich accents of anise and dried violet give depth through the finish. Drink now through 2026. 750 cases imported.
