About

About the Wine

The Louis Jadot Morgon Chateau Des Jacques is a lovely expression of Gamay fom the Morgon cru in Beaujolais. It shows wonderful aromas of black and red fruits, as well as some spicy and savoury notes. On the palate, the wine is lively, with bright, ripe fruit and flavours of red fruits and floral notes, and fresh acidity making the wine come alive in the mouth. You can drink it now or leave it for a few more years.

Morgon is one of the ten Beaujolais crus, where the best and most cellar-worthy expressions of Gamay are produced. If you see a Beaujolais from one of these areas, it's always worthwhile checking it out.

About Maison Louis Jadot

Maison Louis Jadot is one of the biggest and best known negociants operating in Burgundy and Beaujolais, producing a dizzying array of wines from fruit sourced all over the region. Established in 1859 by Louis Henri Denis Jadot, the business purchases grapes from growers and produces wines under the Louis Jadot name, in what is now a state-of-the-art winery. Since 1985, the business has been owned by Kobrand, a US-based marketer of wine and spirits.

With the distinctive label featuring a depiction of the statue of Bacchus (the Roman god associated with wine and ecstacy) located outside the winery, Louis Jadot bottles are instantly recognisable. Louis Jadot produces wines predominantly from Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, but also Gamay and Aligote, at the regional, village, premier cru, and grand cru level.

From the Producer

Vinification

Picked and sorted by hand, then often de-stemmed, the grapes macerate slowly over the course of three or four weeks. Some pigeage and pumping take place during the fermentation period, according to the vintage.

Winemaking and bottling

The wines are aged for 10 months in concrete tank and in oak barrels, in our historic cellar ; new oak, one, two and three vintages old barrels. The oak used to make the barrels comes from the forests of Allier, Limousin and Nivernais.

Tasting / Food pairing

This Morgon individual character originates from the rich volcanic soils on which it grows. Although firm and powerful, the tannins show the Gamay typical suppleness. This deep wine with violet aromas will perfectly match all sorts of dishes with great personality.

Critic Reviews

Wine Advocate

''Bursting with aromas of blackberries, cherries and sweet soil tones, the 2018 Morgon is medium to full-bodied, fleshy and succulent, with melting tannins and a generous core of lively fruit. Pure and seamless, this is a classically proportioned example of the appellation that's very well made, showing no discernible oak influence.'' Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

"Deep ruby. Spice-accented aromas of cherry, black raspberry and candied flowers, along with hints of licorice and cracked pepper. Plush and seamless on the palate, offering juicy dark and bitter cherry flavors that show depth and spicy lift. Closes on a subtle floral note, displaying very good tenacity and smooth tannins that sneak in late. Best after 2021." Antonio Galloni (Vinous.com)

FaQs

Do I have to order in dozens? No, please mix it up! You can order wines in any quantity and variation you like. You can order 1 bottle or 50. We challenge you to make the ultimate mixed pack of wine!

Are there volume discounts? No, our pricing is designed to be the best in market already - no marking up and then discounting down! For very large orders (weddings, etc) we are open to negotiating though. Just give us a call.

Do we price match? Yes, within reason. Everyday low & consistent pricing is something we strongly believe in. We want our customers to feel confident they are always getting the best price. If you see a price lower somewhere else let us know and we'll consider matching it. We'll even retrospectively issue you store credit if you have already purchased from us but you see a lower price somewhere later on. Our price match policy can be seen here.

Can coupons and discounts be stacked? No, only one discount or coupon can be applied to an order at once.

I am trying to add more of a wine to my cart but it won’t let me? This means we are running low on stock of that wine. So for example, if the website will only allow you to add 3 bottles and no more, then that is all we have of that particular wine. The good news is we may be able to order more for you. Just contact us on 1300 668 385 or hello@differentdrop.com and we'll organise the additional quantity for you.

Does Different Drop have a physical store? No. Just an a warehouse/office. We occasionally do events however, so sign up to our newsletter or follow us on instagram to stay in the loop.
