A tasting sample from VinUnic arrived in time for dinner.
2010 Moulin-á-Vent Chateau des Jacques, Louis Jadot
A very young, fresh, herbal nose with notes of sweet red currants, raspberry lemonade, green pepper, violets and strawberry liquorice. Very good. A fresh, upfront, juicy fruit.
The taste is cool, fresh and with the right amount of backbone. Fine notes of sweet lingonberries, violets, liquorice and fresh herbs. A medium long finish with fine sandy tannins in the end. This is drinking fine now but could surely be kept for 8-10 years. For 21 Euro, I think it is a bargain. And why Chateaux doesn´t have a ^ over the a in Chateaux is one of the worlds great mysteries....:-)
