Louis Jadot Chateau des Jacques Moulin-a-Vent Clos de Rochegres Beaujolais 2010

External Review by NapaCabs.com:

The last vintage was on the Wine Spectator's Top 100, and we expect the 2010 do also do quite well. Regardless of press however this wine deserves to be in your glass.

  Maison Louis Jadot is a winery that’s proud of its heritage and land. Founded in 1859 by Louis Henry Denis Jadot, Maison Jadot expanded rapidly, taking northern Europe by storm. When his son, Louis Jean Baptiste, took over in 1900, more change took place, and many vineyards were acquired, including Corton Charlemagne and Chevalier Montrachet Les Demoiselles. With the help of Rudy Kopf, founder of the Kobrand Corporation, Maison Jadot expanded even further, setting up shop in both England and the U.S. In 1985, Madame Jadot sold the company to Rudy Kopf’s family, ensuring a successful future for the company. The land is very important to Maison Louis Jadot, and making the terroir shine through is always a priority. Maison Jadot identifies with its Burgundy heritage, and all wines are Appellation Contrôlée. The winery controls about 380 acres of land in Burgundy, including Côte d'Or, Mâconnais and Beaujolais. Jacques Lardière, winemaster, works with Christine, Guillaume, and Audrey to ensure that the single-variety wines produced, including Pinot Noir for reds, Chardonnay for whites, and Gamay for Beaujolais, always produce the best, most consistent wines.

Representing a blend from among all five of their sites but at the time of my tasting indicative rather than definitive, the Chateau des Jacques 2010 Moulin-a-Vent displays strikingly deep color as well as palpable density for its vintage. Ripe dark cherry and brown spices wreathed in floral hints inform the nose and a glycerin-rich though distinctly tannin-infused palate. A fine sense of salinity pulls at the salivary glands and suggestions of red and smoked meats emerge in a sustained, if for now, only modestly refreshing or invigorating finish. I suspect we shall end up with a wine that invites drinking over the next 2–3 years notwithstanding its tannin. (Here is another of the 2009s from this property that has fulfilled my highest issue-190 expectations.)

With intimations of sea breeze, bittersweet floral perfume, and pit-inflected cherry and plum, Chateau des Jacques’s generic 2010 Moulin-a-Vent delivers every bit as much complexity and saliva-inducement as I attributed to it in my Issue 196 review from tank, but meantime, the fruit has lost none of its exuberant freshness while the tannins have acquired considerably more refinement and this is as pleasurable now as it should be through at least 2015.
