April 30, 201292 Stylish, with suave notes of espresso bean and cocoa powder accenting blackberry coulis, fig paste and kirsch flavors while firm tannins and juicy acidity provide a solid framework. Grippy finish. Best from 2013 through 2018. 200 cases imported.
August 201089-90+ Reflecting the Chateau des Jacques’s lowest-elevation and richest in clay parcel of otherwise sandy, manganese-rich soil, their 2009 Moulin-a-Vent Champ de Cour mingles ripe cherry, red raspberry, vanilla, resin, coconut, and brown spices in an almost gaudy nose and a sweetly-ripe, almost confectionary and honeyed palate. With greater sense of vivacity and focus to offset its sheer ripeness than are possessed by the corresponding Clos des Thorins, it finishes with impressive persistence and will doubtless be worth following for at least 4-6 years.
