Tasted with Daniel at the Bottlenotes Around the World in 80 Sips book signing at the W Hotel, 11/14/08.
LJ: "The Beaujolais area is located in south of Burgundy. The Château des Jacques was bought in 1996 by Maison Louis Jadot and it is probably the most prestigious wine house in Beaujolais. It owns 32 hectares in Moulin à Vent and 9 hectares in Beaujolais white or Bourgogne white : the "Clos de Loyse".
Among the 55.000 acres (22.000 hectares) of vineyards planted in the Beaujolais region, about 15.000 acres (6.000 hectares) are under the name Beaujolais Villages « Appellation d'Origine Contrôlée » which is the intermediary appellation between the Beaujolais and the 10 Crus.
The soil of "Clos de Loyse" terroir is made of clay, chalk and sand; it is a unique area full of old vines.
The Beaujolais Villages "Clos de Loyse" is vinified in stainless steel tanks at a low temperature and bottled in the spring at a relatively young age, to keep all of its freshness.
The Beaujolais Villages Blanc Grand Clos de Loyse is a delicate fresh and fruity wine. It is a charming white wine, ideal as an aperitif as well as with seafood or "charcuterie"
The Beaujolais Villages white is supposed to be drunk young, but it can also keep 3-5 years in good cellaring conditions."
