Atop the hierarchy of Beaujolais Crus are Moulin-à-Vent and Morgon, with notable aging potential. Often called the most “Burgundian” cru, Moulin-à-Vent shows complexity, finesse and length, while Morgon is the most robust and structured. Château des Jacques Moulin-à-Vent can age at least 10-20 years; Morgon can mature a minimum 5-20 years.

Following harvest, a portion of the grapes is destemmed before the wine is vinified in closed vats with pumping over. Finally, the wine matures in oak barrels.

Tasting note-

This full, robust Beaujolais offers a fleshy texture and greater longevity than any other Beaujolais cru. Its exceptional structure supports vivid red fruit aromas.
food pairing

Moulin-à-Vent is perfect with lighter red meat dishes.

Brilliant ruby. Pungent red and blue fruits and a hint of violet on the mineral- and spice-accented nose. Fleshy and broad on the palate, offering black raspberry and boysenberry flavors that tighten up slowly with air. The blue fruit note returns on the gently tannic finish, which hangs on with very good tenacity.

A well-packed red, with a gamy note weaving throughout macerated cherry and plum flavors. Revealing subtle fruitcake spice, red tea and licorice notes, the plush palate is powered by chalky mineral and plush yet focused tannins.
