The Clos du Grand Carquelin from Château des Jacques is a lovely Moulin-à-Vent, offering up a deep and complex nose of dark berries, cassis, chicory, gamebirds, dark soil tones, fresh thyme, a bit of spicy oak and bitter chocolate. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, young and sappy at the core, with superb focus and balance, sound acids and a fair bit of backend tannin on the very long and very refined finish. A bit of the tannin on the backend right now hails from the new wood used for this bottling, but the wine simply needs some bottle age to fully integrate these tannins. 2018-2040+.

A finely perfumed wine touched with wood Beaujolais in a Burgundy style structured and with intense acidity. It is packed with firm tannins surrounded by a lively cherry and rich fruit character. - R.V.

The high quartzite content that geologically links Chateau des Jacques's 2010 Moulin-a-Vent Clos du Grand Carquelin with their Chenas En Papolet seems evident also in a prominent mouthwatering salinity and a sense of lift and sappy brightness of red currant and red raspberry. Those looking for geological signs might associate the iron- and manganese-rich characteristic for Moulin-a-Vent in general with the deep beef marrow meat-stock richness that underlies this Carquelin and supplies a dynamic yet somehow by no means discordant counterpoint to the wine's sharply-focused red fruits. As with the corresponding Champs de Cour tannin is very fine and in the background and the texture is almost silken. Hints of lanolin and brown spices from barrel are discreet and well-integrated. This should be worth following for half a dozen or more years. -David Schildknecht
