Vineyards situation : Maison Louis Jadot bought the Château des Jacques in 1996. It is situated in Moulin à Vent, between Fleurie and Chenas, and has 27 ha vineyards of ‘Moulin à Vent Château des Jacques'. The soil is typically granitic. 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.

Characteristics : 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.

Wine making : The wine is vinified in closed vats with pumping over, and then aged in oak barrels for 6 months. One part of the grapes are de-stemmed.

Winemaker's comments / Gastronomy : The Louis Jadot Moulin à Vent is a full, robust Beaujolais, with a fleshy, almostfat 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.

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