I begin an exploration of a trio of Louis Jadot / Chateau des Jacques single-vineyard cru Moulin-a-Vents, with a bit of age on them!
Deep garnet color.
Cherry / berry smells, with a bit of vanilla oak,
Warm cherry/blackberry/strawberry/blueberry fruit flavors, restrained oak.
Fairly complex, full-bodied Beaujolais, $28.23 / bottle. As serious a Beaujolais as I've ever had. I don't think I've before had a Beaujolais that could stand up to a dose of new oak, but it's not out of place here.
