Food Pairings for Louis Jadot Moulin à Vent Château des Jacques Gamay Beaujolais Moulin á Vent
This wine is available for EN PRIMEUR purchase ONLY. 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. Moulin à Vent is situated between Fleurie and Chenas, and has 27 ha vineyards of 'Moulin à Vent'. 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 "La Roche" has a nice deep garnet red colour with brilliant tints. It releases a very expressive nose of violet, faded rose and ripened little black fruits. It offers a very nice attack in the mouth with elegant tannins that give a sensation of richness and very good retro-olfaction. This wine will perfectly match red meats in sauce, game and most cheeses.
