Château Vieux Moulin

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. — 9 days ago

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!

Domaine Richard Rottiers

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

Domaine du Vieux Télégraphe

Télégramme Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhone Blend 2015

The 2nd wine to Vieux Telegraphe’s famed La Crau. Sweet Grenache raspberry notes on nose and palate. Fresher, more fruit and less savoury than I was expecting, although there is a note of light tar. Tannins are fine and very fluid. Hasn’t got the depth of La Crau. 80% Grenache 10% Syrah 6% Mourvèdre 4% Cinsault. — 5 days ago

Châteauneuf-du-Pape Blanc White Rhone Blend 2016

Love these Mediterranean whites. Unctuous and delicious. Medium to full bodied with low soft acid. Notes of apricot, nectarine and pineapple juice. I have 3 left which I should drink in the next 12 to 18 months. — 5 days ago

Ava White Rhône Blend 2016

Happy birthday to me. Nutty, honey, a little creamy, stone fruit, but with solid minerality. Wonderful. — 10 days ago
