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.

This ruby colored wine from the Moulin-a-Vent commune opens with a mild strawberry and mushroom bouquet with a hint of vanilla and cherry. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied with medium acidity. The mouthfeel is balanced, smooth and very easy to drink. The flavor profile is a tasty black cherry with notes of mild blackberry and spice. The finish is dry and its flavors drift away nicely. Enjoy – Ken

The 2020 Moulin-à-Vent is both the richest and the most refined of the three generic bottlings from the Château des Jacques, revealing aromas of cherries, smoky berries, spices and orange rind, followed by a medium to full-bodied, ample and velvety palate with lively acids and powdery structuring tannins. It’s largely derived from lieu-dit Rochegrès.

Long, complex finish with depth and energy in near-perfect balance.

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.
