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.
2015 was characterized by a very cold winter followed by a mild drought in spring, which led to bud break at the start of April. The rest of the spring was hot and dry and enabled the vines to grow at a fast pace and to ensure flowering was taking place in ideal conditions. Summer was really hot until the start of August with the arrival of slightly cooler weather and, even more importantly, some rainfall. This allowed the vines to finish their ripening in ideal conditions even if there was still limited water available for the vines' roots, which resulted in lower yields. The harvest started on the 31st August and we are pleased to say that 2015 is a great vintage, similar to 2009.
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.
