Louis Jadot Moulin-À-Vent 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

Maison Louis Jadot was founded in 1859 by Louis Henry Denis Jadot. He quickly developed a reputation as a high quality producer and his aim was to build his reputation as a top quality winemaker in Burgundy. To achieve this aim he continued to purchase vineyards to add to the family's earlier purchase of Beaune Clos des Ursules and Chevalier Montrachet Les Demoiselles vineyards. His Grandson, who took over at the end of WWII continued to build Louis Jadot's Domaine holdings by acquiring Grand Cru vineyards in Corton Pougets and Corton Charlemagne. Maison Louis Jadot bought the Château des Jacques in 1996. It is situated in Moulin à Vent, between Fleurie and Chenas, and has 27 ha vineyards of 'Moulin à Vent Château des Jacques'. The soil is typically granitic. The Moulin à Vent wine is now referred to as the "King of Beaujolais", and is considered to be the most Burgundian Cru of Beaujolais. The Louis Jadot Moulin à Vent is a full, robust Beaujolais, with a fleshy, almost fat texture and greater longevity than any other Cru of the Beaujolais. The exceptional quality of its structure preserves a fruitiness which becomes mellow with bottle age. It may be enjoyed after cellaring for 10 years or more (in good conditions of temperature and humidity). After this amount of ageing it will be perfect with red meat or game, such as rabbit or vension.

  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.

Alluring nose of raw beef blood and sweet perfumey floral and some nail polish and notes of slightly sour red fruit. In the mouth balanced and well-integrated elements of acid, bitterish nut, and ripe dry slightly bitter and smokey tannic sour red and dark fruit (cranberry, blackberry, dark cherry). Finish of mocha-coffee and hints of wood and mineral and faint fruit. Dry. Body medium, acid medium, tannin medium plus. Delicious.

Just named to the Wine Spectator Top 100 Wines of 2010!! Moulin-a-Vent is the king of Cru Beaujolais and this single estate boasts almost 70 prime vineyard acres on five different lots. Louis Jadot purchased the Chateau des Jacques in 1996 and since has producing estate bottled wines from these vineyards that is truly oustanding. The Wine Advocate recently rated this 2009, 91-92 points saying "Representing a blend from all five of their sites but favoring Champ de Cour and Carquelin, Chateau des Jacques’s 2009 Moulin-a-Vent smells of black and red raspberry, with heliotrope and lily overtones. With a striking and surprising sense of seamless oily-richness to its sweetly, exuberantly berry-brimmed palate impression, this reveals satisfying low-toned salted meat stock character that persists all the way through a lingering, lip-smacking finish. I suspect this already exceptional value will gain detail and finesse and be worth following for 4-6 years." Don't miss it.

Supple and red fruited with a strawberry freshness, this wine's deep color and purple ripeness give few clues to its complexities. It firms up with air, revealing a mouthwatering tannin as edgy as crushed rock. The fruit develops toward delicacy, lasting through a crisp and elegant finish. Cellar this for four or five years, and then serve it with flavorful, grass-fed beef.

Bright purple. Spice-accented red and dark berries on the nose, with complicating notes of smoky minerals, dried flowers and black cardamom. Deep cherry-vanilla and black raspberry flavors provide very good palate coverage. Weightier on the finish, where the dark berry and floral notes linger with very good tenacity.

Graphite and vanilla aromas mix with the pure raspberry coulis, fig and ripe cherry fruit in this bright, lively red. There's a sublayer of smoke and iron notes, with a lightly chewy finish. Drink now through 2014
