    Hailing from the highest rated of all the Beaujolais Crus, the Lucien Lardy "Les Thorins" Moulin-à-Vent is drinking beautifully right now. On the nose, there's dried herbs, garrigue and tart cherry. On the palate, this is a pleasantly fuller-bodied expression of Gamay with notes of dried cranberries, herbs, black fruits, and baking spice. Quite smooth, with a firm tannic backbone. Definitely some aging potential here. Superb wine at this price.

    King of the Cru's for only $16.99? Wow, this is an incredibly priced Moulin a Vent! Dark fruited and playfully seductive, this wine shows all the classic hallmarks. The wine is dark garnet in color with a nose infused with aromas of violet, spice and ripe black cherry. The wine drinks silky smooth and shows granite-like minerality on the finish. Lovely stuff, and perfect for Spring/Summer!

    The Lardy wines are a new label for of and another fantastic example of what our buyer is finding for us in Beaujolais. Finding a Moulin A Vent for this price is rare enough, but also finding one of this complexity for the same price is remarkable. A beautiful mix of blue and blackberry with floral notes and layers of spice. The palate is smooth and supple with acid and silky tannin adding structure. A powerful wine with lots going on at a beautiful price.

    If there is any village in Beaujolais that could pass for Burgundian in style it is Moulin-a-Vent. A beautiful nose of fresh cranberry, rose hips, spice and morning dew leap from the glass. On the palate this beauty exudes delicate red fruit flavors as well as spice and mineral notes. Great body and lift carry this wine all the way thru to the finish which reveals a surprisingly weighty wine. This wine could easily pass for a fine village-level Burgundy.
    Top Value! Drink from 2018 to 2022
