    Information about domain Château des Jacques - Louis Jadot

    Château des Jacques has been owned by the Burgundy based producer-merchant Louis Jadot since 1996 and has 80 hectares of vines spread over six appellations: Morgon, Chénas, Fleurie, Moulin à Vent, Beaujolais Blanc and Bourgogne "Clos de Loyse". All of the harvests are carried out by hand. After being transported in small crates, dried-up berries and insects are removed from the grapes (the vines are grown using natural methods) with the help of a vibrating table. The grapes are then sorted. A machine then carefully separates the grapes from the stalks, a process that is not particularly common in this region. This allows a long maceration without the extraction of green tannins from the stalks. The maceration lasts for three weeks and ensures a gentle and complete extraction. In the chai, the wine is only partially matured in new barrels so as to not overpower the wine.The wine from this domain often has a Burgundian style and often needs about five years in a cellar to allow it to fully express the complexity of its terroir.
