Château Vent Léger

Domaine des Terres Dorées (Jean-Paul Brun)

Moulin-à-Vent Gamay 2016

Light ruby colour. Complex nose at first, Burgundian, dominated by raspberry, and white pepper, also evolved vegetal notes, ferrous, undergrowth, etc. many evocations but all in finesse. After two hours of aeration, the wine is finally in place and the finish finally unfolds between raspberry, pepper and undergrowth. Light but chewy. One of my favourite styles!

Robe rubis légère. Nez complexe à l’abord, bourguignon, dominé par la framboise, et le poivre blanc, également des notes évoluées végétales, ferreux, sous-bois, etc. de nombreuses évocations mais tout en finesse. Après deux heures d’aération le vin est enfin en place et la finale se déploie enfin entre framboise, poivre et sous-bois. Léger mais avec de la matière à mâcher. L’un de mes styles de prédilection!

Chateau Du Moulin À Vent

Les Terasses Du Château 2018

Medium ruby, some nice candied red fruit notes and fennel, black licorice.
This Beaujolais doesn't carry the bubble gum or cotton candy flavors of lesser examples, instead there is a light mix of lavender and pepper.
Medium tannins, M+ acid and alky.
Not a ton of layers but really well balanced and an easy drinking or pairing wine.

Thibault Liger-Belair

Vieilles Vignes Moulin-à-Vent Gamay 2016

My first time trying the 2016 vintage. This bottle was opened about 90min before service. The wine pours a deep garnet, fading to magenta, with a watery rim. It has a slightly turbid appearance and a nearly opaque core with slight, staining of the tears. On the nose, holy whole cluster city Batman! This Moulin-à-Vent is not faking the funk on a nasty dunk. Notes of dark fruit, curry, cheese rind, wet asphalt, and minerals. Fabulous acid and medium+ tannin. The finish is long, lingering, and slightly green. I fell in love with Thibault’s wines from M-à-V with the 2010 vintage and I’ve been smitten ever since. They are among the most exciting wines made in the Cru today. In 3-5 years, these will really slap. — 10 days ago

Moulin-à-Vent Gamay 2020

Dusty patina (like walking through a Japanese temple) pomegranate and cranberry. Mixed white and black peppercorns. Uplifting acid (in a good way) that super complements food. TBL — a month ago

Château des Bachelards

Comtesse de Vazeilles Moulin-à-Vent Gamay 2015

N; like violet pastilles. Swampy funk, blows off, stones, interesting blue/black
with a touch of garrigue.
P:Lithe, somewhat saline upon entry,
trips over the tongue, such nice mouthfeel. Blackberries, slightly prickly tannins, this wine could go 10 more years. The panoply of flavors hints at tomato leaf, black fruits, with that ever present chewy tannin structure lurking.
Mind you, we PnP this one.
I could drink this …a…long ….time
