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 grilled seafood.

Reviews and Ratings

Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

An aromatic garnet red Gamay with viscous legs. The nose shows tart red plums and pepper, while the tasty palate shows bright red plums, pepper and earth. Food-friendly acidity, medium-bodied and well-balanced with a long spicy finish.
Heather Wall - CS; WSET Advanced rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Light-bodied with an earthy masculine quality to it. Red berries, cranberry, cherry, black earth,vanilla, dried herbs, leather and tar. Smooth with cleansing balanced acidity. Enjoy today. Enjoy with just about anything as this is a very approachable red wine.
Tasted: June 2015
Matt Steeves - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Light ruby red, the nose shows dark cherry, wood smoke, cedar, and a light floral note. Cherry, leather, and cran-apple notes on the palate. A light bodied wine to enjoy with pan seared trout, or charcuterie. Tasted June 2015. 88 points. Matt Steeves
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
