La Rochelle Moulin-A-Vent Gamay 2012

🏅93/100 (4,3⭐)

Beaujolais Cru est arrive! Moulin-à-vent tasting.

The most Burgundian of all. WOTN. Yes, it has loads of oak, but it perfectly suits the wine. It's not heavy vanilla, but elegant and in unison with all other elements. Pure and perfume which takes you to the top sites of Cot d'Or. Peak maturity now. Splendid wine!

Owned by Louis Jadot. New high tech cuverie since 2016. Most vineyards are managed biodinamicly and organic

Beaujolais Cru est arrive! Moulin-à-vent tasting.

This is natural wine made with carbonic maceration. It makes it lighter in style with wide spectrum of berries, flowers and spices. Full of everything in bright summer colours. Optimal balance of all the elements. Good grip of tannins, lightweight. Cheerful and graceful wine. Instant pleasure, no need to age.

🏅 Rating 90+/100 (4,05⭐)

Beaujolais Cru est arrive! Moulin-à-vent tasting.

Good address for serious Beaujolais in Burgundian style. It was very youthful indeed, but huge potential sensed right away. Purple color, violets on the nose, touch of oak. Seek for wines with some bottle age.

Partially destemmed, 2 weeks maceration in cement bars, elevage in demi-muids and foudre.

Beaujolais Cru est arrive! Moulin-à-vent tasting.

Bordeaux shaped bottles. Long elevage. Certified biodynamics.
This wine is all about the greatness of the fruit. So ripe and fragrant. Healthy vines and optimal harvesting. Wine doesn't overwhelm with variety of aromas and flavours but strikes with its depth and precision. Concentration of fruit wrapped in violets.

Moulin-à-Vent Gamay 2016

2020 Thanksgiving Beaujolais. Dark and brooding version. Aromas and flavors of black fruits with hints of violets, smoke, minerals and loamy earth. Plenty of acidity and richness, which made this a good option to pair with food. Velvety tannins and a long finish. — 4 days ago

Beautiful fruit profile and some herbs and earth too. Tart acidity, medium bodied, and solid structure, but way too young right now. Huge tannins. — 10 days ago

Clos de Rochegres Moulin-a-Vent Gamay 2015

Beautiful purple / garnet color. Fine and complex nose, fruity and floral: peony rose. Deep on the palate, somewhere between a beefy Burgundy Pinot Noir and a Syrah from Rhone-Nord; to be mistaken. At first glance discreet, the finish reveals itself on tender and finely persistent tannins. The whole is very homogeneous and dense. A wine with a Burgundy style, delicate, which will be able to age for a number of years.

Belle robe pourpre/grenat. Nez fin et complexe, fruité et floral: rose pivoine. Bouche profonde, quelque part entre un pinot noir bourguignon et une Syrah du Rhone-Nord; à s’y méprendre. La finale de prime abord discrète, se révèle sur des tanins tendres et finement persistants. L’ensemble et très homogène et dense. Un vin au style bourguignon, délicat, qui pourra encore vieillir pas mal d’années.
