The wines are rich and generous with lovely juicy fruit balanced with finely grained tannins and fresh acidity. A vibrant wine.
One of the 10 Crus of Beaujolais situated between Villefranche sur Saône and Mâcon. Louis Jadot source from specific parcels to make a blend at their Château des Jacques estate.
Conditions for 2014 started well however a violent hailstorm in June hit several communes in the Mâcon and Côte d'Or which had a devastating effect. Summer then continued to be unsettled but a period of dry weather in September returned the available grapes to good health. Harvest started on the 11th of September.
Vinified in the traditional way for this region, semi-carbonic maceration (12-20 days) with pumping over in order to extract good colour, tannins and flavours.
