A proper Beaujolais from the serious Cru village of Morgon. This is wonderfully a food-friendly style, with red fruits in a bright and expressive palate packed with freshness, structure and some minerality. Chateau St Jacques follow Burgundy techniques, with fruit carefully de-stemmed for indigenous yeasts fermentation followed by 100% old oak aging in their historic cellar. This is a gorgeous red to decant soon or age a while, then match with duck or rich pork.

Its Origins

The historic Château des Jacques estate, located in the village of Romanèche-Thorins in the Moulin-à-Vent appellation, is widely recognized as the most prestigious estate in Beaujolais. It was purchased by Louis Jadot in 1996, at which time Maison Louis Jadot became the first Burgundy house to own a major Beaujolais vineyard. In 2001, Louis Jadot bought another well-located vineyard in Morgon. In 2008, both vineyards, which were under the same management, were regrouped under one identity: the Château des Jacques Estates. Château des Jacques’ practices have been attributed with revolutionizing the winemaking of Beaujolais. They have notably raised the bar, applying Burgundian methods of winemaking that were once traditional in the region. These include long macerations of one month, with pump-overs, to extract color, aroma and tannins from the fruit, as opposed to the regional norm of 10- to 12-day macerations. Wild yeasts are used for fermentation, and this is extended longer than is typical in Beaujolais. Aging in oak barrels is also unusual for the area; Château des Jacques’ wines are barrel aged for 10 months to lend complexity to the wines. The chateau's barrel cellar proves that its Beaujolais wines have always been vinified like wine from the Côte D’Or. These processes create wines that can take decades of bottle aging.

What The Critics Say

91/100 Parker's Wine Advocate, William Kelley

"Bursting with aromas of blackberries, cherries and sweet soil tones, the 2018 Morgon is medium to full-bodied, fleshy and succulent, with melting tannins and a generous core of lively fruit. Pure and seamless, this is a classically proportioned example of the appellation that's very well made, showing no discernible oak influence." Drink 2020 - 2033

92/100 Vinous, Josh Raynolds (2016 vintage)

"Deep lurid magenta. Cherry liqueur, dark berry, vanilla and woodsmoke qualities on the deeply perfumed nose. Smooth, broad and fleshy on the palate, offering sweet black/blue fruit and spicecake flavors braced by a spine of juicy acidity. Sneaky, harmonious tannins add gentle grip to the impressively long, energetic finish, which features lingering bitter cherry, allspice and mineral notes."
