Louis Jadot Moulin-à-Vent

Olive - - Lulu's Notes -

Gen­er­ally re­garded as one of the best of the 10 crus of Beau­jo­lais, Moulin-à-Vent is made from 100% gamay grapes, grown on pink gran­ite soil which gives a con­cen­trated, long-last­ing style, and when th­ese wines age they ac­quire the soft, silky tex­ture of old bur­gundy. Château des Jac­ques is owned by one of Bur­gundy’s top pro­duc­ers, Louis Jadot. They aim to bring out the character of the place and the soil in the wine, us­ing tra­di­tional wine­mak­ing and low yields. This is a much more se­ri­ous wine than Beau­jo­lais nou­veau. It has deep red berry and cherry fruit, with savoury notes and a crisp fnish. En­joy it with lamb, chicken and meaty fsh such as tur­bot. bind Château des Jac­ques Moulin-à-vent on the list at The cor­ing in hon­don and at North­cote in Lan­cashire at around £40, or buy it to drink at home at Ma­jes­tic at £15.99.
