The 2013 Moulin-a-Vent Tradition comes from 2.5 hectares of 50-year-old vines, undergoes semi-carbonic maceration before four months in wooden vats (30% barrel aged.) It has an engaging bouquet of dark cherries, bergamot and undergrowth that is well-defined and gains vigor in the glass. The palate is well-balanced with supple, ripe tannins. There is good weight and focus, fresh mineral-rich dark berry fruit with a crisp, structured finish. This is very fine. Drink now-2022. (NM)
Vivid ruby. Intense black raspberry, blood orange and musky herb aromas show very good focus and lift. Bitter cherry pit and dark berries on the palate, with a hint of smokiness in the background. Juicy and expansive on the smoky, mineral-tinged finish, with fine-grained tannins building slowly. A classic example of ageworthy Beaujolais and one that should be a beauty in another six years. (Drink between 2016-2023) (JR)
Vines 40 to 80 years old. Made with a 'soft winemaking technique' and French oak barrels according to the back label, in French and English. Dark crimson with a strong blueish tinge. Meaty, savoury nose. Really mouthfilling and attractive even now though there are fine tannins on the finish. Racy and very lively too. Quite winning. Too substantial to drink without food.
