A very different style of Beaujolais Cru which shows the potential of really well made Cru Beaujolais.
Louis Jadot purchased the Château des Jacques estate in Moulin à Vent at the end of 1996. The estate is well known as one of the most prestigious in Beaujolais and is made up of 6 different "clos" totalling 28.78 ha, which are now all vinified separately.
The grapes are de-stemmed and crushed before fermentation and the wine is barrel aged to create a wine with rich and succulent Gamay fruit as well as having the concentration and structure to develop in bottle.
