Ripe black cherry and red plum notes are interwoven with mineral and dried herb elements in this brooding Gamay. Licorice and floral accents echo on the structured, toasty finish.

Fragrant and packed with steeped raspberry, black tea and cherry gelée flavors that are licorice-tinged and focused, with dusty tannins giving structure to the mineral and mocha notes on the long finish.

Violet aromas edge the glazed cherry, raspberry tea and licorice notes of this rich, charming Gamay, with elements of potpourri, orange peel and mineral filling the finish. Fleshy tannins.

Château des Jacques Moulin-à-Vent 2016
March 31, 2019 90 Points Wine Spectator

A richer style, but still fresh and focused, with plush tannins encasing raspberry filling and cherry compote notes, accented by dusty herb and licorice elements. Hints of mocha echo on the long finish.

Wild-berry, new leather, truffle and clove aromas take center stage. Smooth and savory, the linear palate shows dried Marasca cherry, mature plum and licorice set against taut refined tannins.

Scorched earth, prune, Asian spice, toasted nut and leather aromas make their way to the forefront. The brawny palate offers raisin, cherry marinated in spirits, licorice and tobacco set against fine-grained tannins.

Cocoa, baked plum, toast, culinary spice and leather aromas shape the nose. Full bodied and elegant, the smooth, dense palate doles out fleshy black cherry, blackberry jam, licorice and clove while velvety tannins provide structure. It closes on an espresso note.

The wood aging of this wine is apparent in the toasty aromas. On the palate though, the rich fruits come right to the fore. The wine has concentration, density and bold black cherry and plum flavors.

This single-vineyard wine is dense and firmly structured. Bold tannins and rich black fruits are developing well although remain very young. The structure and dense texture show the potential of the appellation.

Château des Jacques Morgon Côte du Py 2016
March 01, 2019 93 Points Wine Enthusiast

Morgon's most famous vineyard is on a long, steep slope. It has produced this perfumed, ripe wine. The tannins are fully integrated into the fruit giving richness and leaving plenty of room for acidity.

Château des Jacques Morgon 2016
March 01, 2019 91 Points Wine Enthusiast

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.

Underbrush, tobacco leaf, toasted oak and leather aromas lead the way. It's tight and concentrated, offering cassis, kirsch, prune, clove and licorice alongside firm, close-grained tannins that grip the close. It closes on a hazelnut note.

This opens with aromas of black-skinned fruit, underbrush, tobacco and culinary spice. The full-bodied velvety palate doles out prune, soaked cherry, star anise and mocha wrapped up in polished tannins. It boasts enough fresh acidity to lift the rich flavors.

Fresh and pure, with lime, flint and gooseberry notes that stay tightly focused through the brisk finish.

Light, taut tannins create a chewy frame for the flavors of wild cherry, cured tobacco, woodsy spice and mineral in this creamy, medium- to full-bodied red.
