Wine tasting notes

Château des Jacques Moulin-à-Vent Clos de Rochegrès is a special cuvée from old vines that cover 20 acres. The soil of the Clos de Rochegrès is typically granitic, fairly shallow and overlies an extremely hard bedrock. After a portion of the grapes is destemmed, the wine is vinified in closed vats with pumping over. The wine is then matured in oak barrels for 10 to 11 months. Clos de Rochegrès has fine rose aromas and flavors with a touch of mineral. The wine is generous on the palate thanks to its elegant, long-lasting tannins.

Expert reviews

Wine Advocate/Robert Parker (2010) - 90 to 91 pts

Aug 2011 - David Schildknecht - A 2010 Moulin-a-Vent Clos de Rochegres originates in the high-elevation site that is by de Castelnau’s account farthest advanced in Chateau des Jacques’s conversion to biodynamic farming, thanks he says to the diligent collaboration of those participating vignerons who are responsible for day-to-day work in these particular vines. Decidedly the most carnal wine in its collection, this emphasizes both smoked and fresh red meats and displays a sappy sense of extract-richness even though tart black fruits are not to the fore. Saliva-inducing salinity, tincture of iodine, and what I can only describe – even if this is merely from power-of-suggestion – as iron filings introduce dynamic and depth to a sustained finish. This finely-tannic, energetic though hardly effusive Moulin-a-Vent should benefit from a couple of years in bottle and merit attention for six or more


Vinous/Antonio Galloni (2013) - 93 pts

Aug 2015 - Josh Raynolds -Vivid ruby. A heady, complex bouquet evokes red fruit preserves, incense and fresh flowers, with notes of blood orange and smoky minerals adding complexity. Stains the palate with juicy raspberry and bitter cherry flavors that are given spine by zesty acidity and sharpened by a minerally element. Clings with excellent tenacity on the long, incisive finish, which is shaped by silky, slow-building tannins.


JancisRobinson.com (2009) - 17.5 pts

Tasted June 2010 - Very dark crimson indeed. Very mineral and sweet (an unusual combination) and unusual. Big and bold and very concentrated. Intense black berries - not very obviously Gamay. Very vibrant. Tingle-issimo.


Wine Spectator (2010) - 91 pts

July 2013 -A tarry base note supports flavors of plum compote, grilled herb, raspberry and ground spice in this fresh and balanced red. Well-meshed and refined in texture, with a zesty finish.


Wine Enthusiast (2012) - 93 pts

This Beaujolais comes from a dense granite vineyard that has produced an equally powerful wine. It's mineral in texture, with aromatic black fruits that have been given a taste of wood from 12 months barrel aging. The acidity at the end as well as the tannins promise aging, so drink from 2017.
