Natalie's Score: 88/100

Lovely sour cherry and tart cranberry aromas and flavours, with lots of mouth-watering acidity. Medium-bodied and smooth. This Beaujolais re wine made from Gamay grapes needs food, like roasted chicken or grille seafood.

Gamay food pairings: roasted stuffed chicken, grilled seafood.

Reviews and Ratings

Greg Hughes rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Chateau des Jacques is Louis Jadot's line of Beaujolais crus. There are others periodically available. The benchmark is their Moulin a Vent and Regnie.
This wine can receive a chilling quite well (15°c) to reveal it's trademark Morgon minerality. Cherry, chickory coffee, kirsch, cassis, and pipe tobacco on the nose and palate. The aromas are also pungent and floral - think a dirty rosebush.
This Morgon is vinified traditionally in an open top fermentors, in stead of the total carbonic Beauj we all gorge on every November.
Produced by Maison Louis Jadot, this southern Burgundian red wine from Beaujolais is made from Gamay grapes. Tart and vibrant. Château des Jacques was once a place to stop during the pilgrim' route to Santiago de Compostela. It was purchased by the Burgundian winery Louis Jadot in 1996. Today it's located next to the famous vineyards of Moulin-a-Vent and Morgon. - Community Wine Reviews
