Region: France / Burgundy / Beaujolais

Château des Jacques Moulin-à-Vent Champ de Cour is a special cuvée from a parcel that covers 5 acres. The soil is very sandy and deep, with 6% to 7% of clay atop bedrock that contains a high percentage of manganese, which helps to impart deep color and mineral character to the wine. After a portion of the grapes is destemmed, the wine is vinified in closed vats with pumping over. The wine is then matured in oak barrels for 10 months.

tasting note

With a deep cherry red color, the Champ de Cour has very expressive aromas of peony and spring flowers, plums and stone fruits. In the mouth, the wine has a velvety texture, with black fruit flavors and notes of smoke. The tannins are elegantly shaped, fine and long.

This wine will perfectly match red meats in sauce, game and most cheeses.
