Château des Jacques Moulin-à-Vent Clos de Rochegrès 2017, France

Gamay from France - Burgundy
Review Date : 22-Nov-2022
Deep, ruby-black with a slight garnet rim. The nose is full, enveloping aromas of ripe plums & berries, sweet liquorice, floral and earth. Medium-full bodied, aromas of plum compote, dried blackberry and rose interweaved liquorice, black pepper and earth. A fine grip of tannin overlying fruit, lingering black tea, herb and spice to a sweet-fruited finish. This Gamay possesses ripe fruit, rose and earthy elements on a firm tannin framework. Match with venison and hare over the next 4 years. Handpicked, hand-sorted, mainly destemmed, macerated over 3-4 weeks, indigenous yeast fermentation, 13% alc, aged a short period in new and old French oak barrels, a total of 10 months spent in the historic cellar. 18/20 pts (90 pts) Nov 2022 RRP $56
