Chateau De Moulin La Roquille

Domaine de la Paillardière

Moulin a Vent Gamay 2015

Splendid nose of cherry moonlight, black currant, hay and a tiny earthy thing. The palate is well done and showing lots of balance. Cherry and black fruits shining all along a great acid backbone, a good width, a soft mouthfeel, some caressing tannins in the rear kicking off a very long finish with fruits. That's a really good effort. More of that! — 8 days ago

@Timothy Lynch I'm in Bordeaux now and it stopped raining on Thursday. I believe it's over too in Belgium, Luxembourg and Germany now but they sustained heavy floodings over there...

Domaine Diochon

Cuvée Vieilles Vignes Moulin-à-Vent Gamay 2017

Ruby color with a translucent core. Medium viscosity. On the nose, medium+ intensity with a mix of dark and red fruit, underbrush, stone, anise, some VA. On the palate, dark tart cherries…almost Campari-like. With time, the tannins begin to build. Medium + acid. Long finish. Diochon is one of those Beaujolais producers that flies under the radar. Definitely needs time. I expect this will be even more lovely in 5-10 years. Hold or drink with patience. — a month ago

Château Moulin Haut-Laroque

Fronsac Red Bordeaux Blend 2006

Black berry, charcoal, smoke, ink, bell pepper. A workin’ man’s bordeaux. You need to give this enough air. Popped and poured four days ago, thought it was pretty tight and backwards. So, I put the cork back in and stuck it in the fridge. Four days later, this wine really sings. — 16 days ago

Very good. Has a bit more structure to it compared to the others from the same producer I have recently tried. Earth, cherry fruit and mouthwatering acid. Might get a few more to hide in the cellar for a few years. — 2 days ago

Moulin Touchais

Coteaux du Layon Chenin Blanc 1985

Mon dieu. Although tested after midnight on midsummer’s eve alongside a Sauterne, this wine is so fresh and vibrant, deep dark dried fruits spiced up with some younger unripe ones, and honey, wax, and marmelade. — a month ago

Louis Boillot

Vieilles Vignes Moulin-à-Vent Gamay 2016

Nice Burgundy style Bojo, nice red fruit, good acidity, supple tannins yet the wine has balance and some depth, but I think you need to drink up, won’t last that long. 88-89

Beau Bojo de style Bourguignon, fruits rouges, belle acidité, tannins assez souples, un beau vin équilibré. Par contre, je pense qu’il faut boire assez rapidement si on veut apprécier sur le fruit.

Domaine Dumien Serrette

Le Moulin Syrah 2018

Northern Rhone QPR, which I thought previously a paradox. Has a plumb line of depth, black berries & cassis. Quite broad mouthfeel. Impressive…
