« The 2010 Moulin-a-Vent La Roche is another of Chateau des Jacques’s wines of its vintage to significantly outperform from bottle last December my descriptions and projections from barrel in Issue 196. Blackberry and red currant mingled with stone, peat and salt inform a juicy and gripping performance, still lean but impressively long, and without the hints of less-ripe elements. » (Wine Advocate 2013 - Robert Parker)

Guide Bettane & Desseauve des Vins de France

Wine rated : 16,5/20 (Vin de référence)
Vineyard rated (guide 2020) : 4****Stars (The producers of very high-quality wines, those who are the glory of the French vineyard)

About this wine : Corsé à souhait, bouche tendue avec une expression minérale de grand caractère, propre au cru. Beaucoup de suavité dans la caresse du tanin.

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.

Vineyard rated : Recommended (Winery recommended by the Wine Advocate - Robert Parker)

About this wine : Le Moulin-à-Vent La Roche 2010 est un autre vin du château qui dépasse notablement mes projections. Cassis et groseille mêlés à de la pierre, de la tourbe offrent un fruit juteux, d'une longueur impressionnante.

Wine rated : 16/20 (Très bon)
Vineyard rated (guide 2020) : 2**Étoiles (Ces très grands domaines, souvent dotés de terroirs fabuleux, sont des incontournables qui, par leur régularité et l'excellence de leur production, se doivent de figurer dans la cave des amateurs avertis)

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 !

The Moulin-à-Vent appellation covers only two communes - Romanèche-Thorins in the Saône-et-Loire and Chénas in the Rhône département. The decree recognizing the appellation dates from 11 September 1936. However, in 1924, the court in Macon, charged with settling disputes relating to counterfeit versions of a wine that was already renowned, had defined the Cru's geographical ...
