Winemaker Notes

The Louis Jadot Moulin-a-Vent is a full, robust Beaujolais, with a fleshy, almost fat texture and greater longevity than any other Cru of the Beaujolais. The exceptional quality of its structure preserves a fruitiness which becomes mellow with bottle age.

It may be enjoyed after cellaring for 10 years or more (in good conditions of temperature and humidity). Then it will be perfect with red meat or game.

Critical Acclaim

RP 89
The Wine Advocate

Representing a blend from among all five of their sites but at the time of my tasting indicative rather than definitive, the Chateau des Jacques 2010 Moulin-a-Vent displays strikingly deep color as well as palpable density for its vintage. Ripe dark cherry and brown spices wreathed in floral hints inform the nose and a glycerin-rich though distinctly tannin-infused palate. A fine sense of salinity pulls at the salivary glands and suggestions of red and smoked meats emerge in a sustained, if for now, only modestly refreshing or invigorating finish. I suspect we shall end up with a wine that invites drinking over the next 2-3 years notwithstanding its tannin. (Here is another of the 2009s from this property that has fulfilled my highest issue-190 expectations.)
Range: 88-89+

The wine world is vast and constantly expanding.

Often, since these regions have yet to gain worldwide popularity, they are great sources for the savvy consumer looking to try something new and interesting at a budget-friendly price.
