Fun to try different vintages in a short time period. The ‘18 shows more dark fruit with a touch of earth. The ‘16 had more spice and citrus. Beautiful and delicious. — 2 days ago

Selection Parcellaire Le Carquelin Moulin à Vent Gamay

What a great style ...garnet with tertiary smokey dried cherry hints of brett character on the nose and on the palate it's dry with fresh acidity juicy dried cherry hints of dried herbs earthy and smokey with a textured finish that lingers. Great value. Thank you Galileo Wine & Spirits — a month ago

Pulled from my cellar and brought to Tasting Group. Decanted for sediment and served within 30 minutes of opening. Cork was pulled with a Durand; intact and saturated about halfway. In customary fashion, served double-blind to the group. The color is a deep, slightly hazy garnet. Medium viscosity. The nose is insanely expressive. Mushrooms and forest floor dominated early but these characteristics actually took more of a back seat to the fruit after about 30-45 minutes of air. At that point, desiccated red fruit with strawberries, cherries and cranberries were predominate followed by Salmiaki, dried flowers, with the mushrooms and the forest floor. Some baking spices too. Sneaky tannin…putting it medium+ and medium+ acid. Moderate alcohol. The finish was long and silky. Such lovely lovely fruit still and dare I say, intense! The group was all over France and Italy with some choosing Barbaresco, some saying Brunello, some in Burgundy and others saying Southern Rhone. All were blown away that it was a 15 year old Beaujolais. Drink now or over the next few years. — 21 days ago

Great note, this bottle exemplifies why we all should age Beaujolais! Especially MaV

16.5+ serious, closer to Pinot than Gamay. Lots of fruit, M+ finish. — 23 days ago

Cuvée Vieilles Vignes Moulin-à-Vent Gamay 2018

Nice deep fruit. Quite ripe. Loads of tannin. A bit boozy on the finish and tannins are kind of young-angular. This should age well. Very good but not what I expected. Biggest Cru Bojo I’ve ever tasted. Better after decant from the fridge. — a day ago

I love Moulin A Vent. Def the boldest of the bojos. Wild how different it is from Fleurie. They’re neighboring sites and taste like completely different wines.
