Louis Jadot Chateau des Jacques Morgon 2016
This is very linear. Graphite and slate undertones. Medium-bodied, tight and focused with ultra-fine tannins. Gorgeous finish.
View from the Cellar
Smooth and juicy with lovely berry fruit and plush texture. Spicy, tangy, and charming, this is Beaujolais the way it should be.
This flagship estate, owned by Beaune negociant Louis Jadot, has produced a wine with great intensity and structure. Partly wood aged, the blend of three vineyards is rich although with a strong streak of freshness and acidity.
Fresh and concentrated, with a supple profile boasting cherry compote, raspberry-infused tea and marjoram notes that are seamless and charming. Undertones of violet, mocha and mineral gain traction on the long finish.
