*ALL PRICES IN BOND* 88 - 89 points Jasper Morris MW Inside Burgundy: Currently in tank, on its finings. Pale colour. A light fresh bouquet with attractive fruit. Some plums, some fresh apple, a steady build up in flesh towards the back of the palate, a good balancing acidity, and fine persistence. Really very good indeed.
Domaine Louis Jadot bought Château des Jacques in 1996. Situated in Moulin à Vent, one of the finest appellations of the Beaujolais, the jewel in this domain’s crown is a 9-hectare clos of Chardonnay, Clos de Loyse.

Extremely successful. Fine long aftertaste.
