« En matière d'élégance de tanins, de finesse aromatique, de soyeux de matière, le Clos du Grand Carquelin atteint un niveau suprême en 2010 ! A mettre en cave et à boire dans dix ans. » (Le Guide des Meilleurs Vins de France 2014 - RVF). Un rouge particulièrement complexe, sur de beaux arômes tels que la pivoine, la rose, l'iodine, les fruits sauvages... Une excellente bouteille !

Guide Bettane & Desseauve des Vins de France

Wine rated (guide 2013) : 17/20 (Vin de référence)
Vineyard rated (guide 2019) : 4****Stars (The producers of very high-quality wines, those who are the glory of the French vineyard)

About this wine : Un toucher caressant, une texture fondante, beaucoup de délicatesse et d’harmonie, de la chair et plein de charme, pour un vin dont la minéralité va progressivement envahir le verre.

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.

Wine rated (guide 2011) : 91-92/100 (Vin formidable)
Vineyard rated : Recommended (Winery recommended by the Wine Advocate - Robert Parker)

About this wine : Le Moulin-à-Vent Clos du Grand Carquelin 2010 offre une salinité alléchante et une grande sève, sur des notes de groseille et de framboise. Ceux qui recherchent les notions caractéristiques de la géologie de Moulin-à-Vent, de fer et de manganèse, les trouveront dans des nuances viandées, de moelle de boeuf qui sous-tendent ce Carquelin, très dynamique. Le tanin est très fin et la texture presque soyeuse, avec une pointe de lanoline et d'épices brunes du bois discrètes et bien intégrées. Il mérité d'être suivi une demi-douzaine d'années, voire plus.

About this wine : En matière d'élégance de tanins, de finesse aromatique, de soyeux de matière, le Clos du Grand Carquelin atteint un niveau suprême en 2010 ! A mettre en cave et à boire dans dix ans.

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 ...
