Beaune Clos des Ursules Beaune Clos des Ursules 1996

Winemaker's Notes:

GRAPE VARIETY: 100% Gamay MAXIMUM YIELD: 48 hl/ha (215 cases/acre) MINIMUM ALCOHOL: 10.5% (13.5% maximum) MINIMUM SUGAR: 189 Grams A 20 to 30 day fermentation with indigenous yeasts then takes place in partially sealed vats to evoke the fullest expression of the fruit and terroir in the finished wine. The cap is either pumped over or held submerged with grills to optimize extraction of color, aroma and tannin. Approximately 40 percent of the wine is aged in Alliers, Limousin and Nevers oak barrels of new or up to two harvest’s use for twelve months in the cellars beneath the estate’s grounds. Some of the lots from each clos are blended with wines from the remaining vineyards and bottled under the primary Château label. Château des Jacques Moulin-à-Vent is a solidly structured, full-bodied, deep garnet wine which shows intense aromas of iris, roses, spices and ripe red fruit. The impressions on the palate are fleshy, velvety and tender, finishing with a firm acidic crispness and long, pronounced final. The wine approaches maturity in most vintages after six to ten years.
