Notes : Robert Parker 92/100, RVF 14/20
Issu de sols très pauvres favorables à un enracinement profond de la vigne, ce Chénas se révèle assez intense et se distingue par ses délicates notes florales et sa fraîcheur. Un rouge à la finale épicée et de bonne longueur, qui s'accommodera d'une volaille fermière rôtie par exemple...

About this wine : Chateau des Jacques's 2011 Chenas En Papolet – from a site (for more about which consult issues 190 and 196) owned by de Castelnau, whose wine was not originally envisioned by Lardiere as a des Jacques bottling, but which has delivered consistently convincing, complex and next sip-compelling results – will be the last of its kind, as well as the last wine so-named for the next several years. The ancient head-pruned vines on this site – unusually bulkily wooded even by the standards of their genre – were not only weakened by age but exceptionally hard to plow and required the spraying of the biodynamic treatments that Jadot endorses be done by hand with the tanks strapped to someone's unlucky back. Consideration was given to retaining half of the old vines but the prospect of needing two very different viticultural regimens for such a small area was deemed impractical and the entire site has been replanted with a cocktail of clones and a substantial share of massal selections that are among the valuable projects being overseen by des Jacques vineyard and cellar manager Cyril Chirouze. It's hard to change the root structure and habits of such old vines, suggests Castelnau, even predicting that “the young vines will yield superior complexity and more of the character from this (quartzite-rich) soil very early on thanks to the root penetration we can achieve by using biodynamic techniques from the outset.” Fruit pit, fresh ginger and nutmeg-tinged cherry and purple plum in the nose anticipate a juicy, invigoratingly spicy and piquant (as well as texturally polished) palate performance that finishes with saliva-stimulating salinity and downright sizzling ginger and radish. I expect superb experiences through at least 2018. (The corresponding 2010 performed no less well when tasted alongside, justifying the upper end of my Issue 196 rating projection.)

About this wine : Le Chénas est fin, quoique un peu couvert par son élevage.

About the vineyard : This flagship estate of Moulin-à-Vent was purchased by  Jadot in 1996. This acquisition has proven to be successful with a rise that very few Beaujolais estates had experienced for almost twenty years. It was a bold, but now transformed, bet for which Pierre-Henri Gagey was committed based on the know-how of Guillaume de Castelnau, the current Director of the Château since 2000. 2014 will be his last harvest as he takes a well deserved retirement. He delimited precisely the various terroirs and developped the area, reaching today about 90 ha in production. The "Burgundian" wines had long given a unique signature in the region. But in recent years, other areas were inspired by this original vision of gamay the Château des Jacques had initiated. All the cuvées parcellaires require a minimum of five years to fully express the unique character of their terroir. It therefore takes patience to take advantage of their complexity !

Vineyard rated (guide 2020) : 4****Stars (The producers of very high-quality wines, those who are the glory of the French vineyard)

About the vineyard : The estate, porperty of Louis Jadot but independently managed by Guillaume de Castelnau and his team, has grown since its acquisition in 1996. Today, the vineyards covers 90 hectares, mostly in Moulin-à-Vent for which it is a specialist, not without reason since it possesses plots in the best areas, like Rochegrès, la Roche, Carquelins and recently la Rochelle. A respectful viticulture, a careful winemaking and well-balanced agings, everything works to make great wines of Beaujolais, evolving perfectly with time.

Très bon vin, vraiment agréablement surpris A très bien fonctionné avec un parmentier (patates douces) de confit de canard et un crumble poire chocolat

The Chénas AOC has been a recognised commune appellation since 1936. The Chenas vineyards cover around 260 hectares, making it the smallest of the Beaujolais Crus. The vineyards entitled to the appellation extend over the communes of Chénas in the Rhône département and La Chapelle-de-Guinchay in the Saône-et-Loire. The grape used for the production of Chénas wine is the Gamay Noir ...
