Château des Jacques, Moulin-à-Vent (Burgundy, France) 2015

($28, Kobrand Wine & Spirits): This Moulin à Vent combines the best of Fleurie and Morgon.  It’s remarkably fresh and approachable with juicy fruitiness and deep mineral-like flavors.  You can almost taste the granite soil.  It has less spice compared to the 2015 Château des Jacques Morgon, but silkier tannins.  This is a marvelously complex and long wine with great finesse, reflecting the grandeur of the site and the vintage. Don’t miss it — it will re-define your idea of wines from this region.
