Moulin à Vent, Beaujolais

Louis Boillot

Vieilles Vignes Moulin-à-Vent Gamay 2017

Great big violets, cherries and blueberries. Has the tension of a heavier spatburgunder. Tannins are fine grained and integrated. So many flowers, lots of perfume. Happy making juice here. Not simple, depth of flavor, good balance, enough tannins to have a long finish. Good stuff. — 9 days ago

Moulin-A-Vent Gamay

The 2012 vintage of this wine is what Jane purchased at the duty-free store in the Paris Charles de Gaulle airport. This is our favorite Beaujolais so far as of January 2020. — 2 days ago

Château des Jacques Clos de Rochegrès Moulin-à-Vent Gamay 2014

This is our third favorite Beaujolais as of January 2020. It is a bit more full-bodied compared to the Château de Jacques Moulin-a-Vent 2012. — 2 days ago

Domaine des Vignes du Tremblay Moulin-à-Vent Gamay 2014

Ultimate badassery from one of the most underrated growers in Beaujolais. A real throwback to the ‘60s and ‘70s crus from giants like Thorin. Burgundian sap and an almost Northern Rhônish savor make this what it always is: the definitive and most geographically faithful example of the transition between Pinot Noir and Syrah that great Gamay offers. The hipsters can have all the natty, stinky carbonic swill they want; I’ll take this. — a month ago

Moulin-à-Vent Gamay

I love gamay and Moulin-à-Vent is prob my fav expression of it. Everything you’d expect here, floral nose, nice concentration, grippy. Dig it. — 4 days ago

Opulent and focused at the same time... bright berry nose with cassis and creme de violet, but also wet river rocks, rose perfume, such a pure expression of fruit and minerals on the palate. Striking but not in any way overwhelming acidity and the gentlest of velvety tannins. A perfectly balanced tightrope walk of a wine... superb arc. Just a beautiful composition of a wine. Hope to put a few bottles away as this is phenomenal young but seems to have the structure and delicacy to “pinot” over time. — a month ago
