The Chateau des Jacques 2011 Morgon had been blended but still not bottled when I tasted it last December. A gorgeous, suggestively sweet nose of wisteria and freesia with candied and confitured cherry and blueberry accented by smoky black tea segues into a finely tannic palate performance in which the fruit mingles persistently with the aforementioned floral essences as well as a hint of game. The strongly gripping yet in no way heavy finish may not – as yet, at least – live up to the allure of the nose, but not only should this prove an excellent value worth following through at least 2015, it may well add complexity along the way. Two-thirds of its volume never left tank, the inverse of the ratio in the corresponding generic Moulin-a-Vent, and doubtless a sensible response perhaps to pronounced grape tannins. Nearly one third of the blend, incidentally, is now from the Roche Noire site previously subjected to a dedicated bottling.

The character of the Morgon is profoundly marked by its volcanic terroir. It is a powerful, muscular wine, though Gamay's tannins are typically supple. Shows very precise, pure aromas of flowers and dark fruits.

A perfect partner for charcuterie, Italian foods and red and white meats.
