Lurid ruby. Deeply perfumed, spice-tinged cherry and dark berries on the perfumed nose. Sappy and expansive on the palate, offering intense boysenberry, bitter cherry and floral pastille flavors and a suggestion of allspice. Very nicely concentrated but quite lively as well. Closes smooth, broad and long, leaving sweet red fruit and spicecake notes behind.(JR)
This is a rich wine, full of red-plum fruits making it ripe and generous. If it does have too much alcohol for a wine from Beaujolais, it shows in a mere hint of pepper. Full of structured tannins as well as the rich fruits, this cru will be ready to drink from 2018.
This is aromatically quite similar to the Fleurie as it's also exceptionally ripe yet, importantly, it's not so ripe as to be roasted or lacking in freshness. By contrast the muscular broad-shouldered flavors are definitely bigger and more powerful with plenty of concentration and dry extract that successfully buffers the firm tannic spine shaping the lingering finish that flirts with rusticity. In much the same fashion as the Fleurie, this could be enjoyed young with the right foods or held for a decade or more if that's your preference.
An elegant style with firm yet integrated tannins and reviving acidity in unison with juicy dark fruit and smoky, fleshy notes - boasts precision and focus.Drinking Window 2017 - 2020.
The 2015 Moulin a Vent has quite a high-toned bouquet showing touches of VA that detracts from its definition. It is difficult to see the terroir here. The palate is sweet and candied on the entry with maraschino cherries and cassis, light tannins with a simple and quite succulent, easygoing finish. However, I did notice some warmth at the back of the throat as the wine slipped down and this deterred me from reaching for another sip.(NM)
An open-knit, medium-bodied red with plum sauce and blackberry fruit, lined with grilled herb and mineral details. Cassis and smoke notes are matched with chewy tannins on the finish. Drink now through 2022.
