« The Chateau des Jacques 2011 Moulin-a-Vent Clos du Grand Carquelin reveals scents of nutmeg, almond extract, and vanilla as well as lightly cooked ripe cherry. It comes to the palate expansive and rich yet, felicitously, juicy and buoyant as well as possessed of alluringly bitter-sweet and elusive inner-mouth iris perfume. Along with saliva-drawing salinity and savory shrimp shell reduction, the merest hint of caramelization is incorporated in its long, succulent finish. » (Wine Advocate 2013 - Robert Parker)

Guide Bettane & Desseauve des Vins de France

Wine rated (guide 2014) : 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 : Plus d’enrobage que la-roche, une belle intensité de saveur et une profondeur plus marquée.

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 2013) : 93/100 (Vin formidable)
Vineyard rated : Recommended (Winery recommended by the Wine Advocate - Robert Parker)

About this wine : Le Château des Jacques Clos du Grand Carquelin 2011 révèle des senteurs de noix de muscade, d'amande et de vanille ainsi que de la cerise mûre légèrement cuite. Il offre une bouche large et riche, juteuse et soutenue par de séduisantes notes douce-amères, avec un insaisissable parfum d’iris. Sa salinité conduit à une finale longue et caramélisée. Un exemple de vin structuré et juteux que Castelnau attribue à la qualité des tanins et à l’extraction douce de la matière première. A suivre jusqu’en 2019 au moins.

Guide des Meilleurs Vins de France - RVF

Wine rated (guide 2014) : 17/20 (Très bon Vin)
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 this wine : Le Clos du Grand Carquelin, aux tanins un rien austères à ce stade, possède un potentiel évident, avec des notes réglissées et fruitées en finale.

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 ...
