CHÂTEAU DES JACQUES Moulin-à-Vent Clos de Rochegrès 2013
SALE $29.99 REG $39.99
Château des Jacques Moulin-à-Vent Clos de Rochegrès is a special cuvée from old vines that cover 20 acres. The soil of the Clos de Rochegrès is typically granitic, fairly shallow and overlies an extremely hard bedrock. After a portion of the grapes is destemmed, the wine is vinified in closed vats with pumping over. The wine is then matured in oak barrels for 10 to 11 months. Clos de Rochegrès has fine rose aromas and flavors with a touch of mineral. The wine is generous on the palate thanks to its elegant, long-lasting tannins. This wine will perfectly match red meats in sauce, game and most cheeses.
92 POINTS – EXCELLENT VOLUME Burghound.com Notes of wood and menthol are clearly discernible on the black fruit, earth and spice-suffused nose. There is excellent volume, power and concentration to the big-bodied, intense and muscular flavors that possess plenty of depth on the sappy, palate coating and dusty finish that is also sneaky long. – Allen Meadows
CHÂTEAU DES JACQUES
SALE $19.99 REG $29.99
Atop the hierarchy of Beaujolais Crus are Moulin-à-Vent and Morgon, with notable aging potential. Often called the most “Burgundian” cru, Moulin-à-Vent shows complexity, finesse and length, while Morgon is the most robust and structured. Château des Jacques Moulin-à-Vent can age at least 10-20 years; Morgon can mature a minimum 5-20 years.
Following harvest, a portion of the grapes is destemmed before the wine is vinified in closed vats with pumping over. Finally, the wine matures in oak barrels. This full, robust Beaujolais offers a fleshy texture and greater longevity than any other Beaujolais cru. Its exceptional structure supports vivid red fruit aromas.
Moulin-à-Vent is perfect with lighter red meat dishes.
