Moulin à Vent, Beaujolais

Domaine Arnaud Aucoeur

Moulin-à-Vent Gamay

beautiful purple, intense dress. on the nose, notes of fresh black fruits, blackberries, blueberries, ripe plums, candied notes, round and enveloping tannins. a magnificent development in the mouth, giving to taste complex aromas. this light, rich and fruity wine will age more years giving very interesting roasted aromas. today it is a delightful wine to accompany all your meals. — 13 days ago

Did you read about a frog who dreamed of being king and became one?? Neil Diamond did. Well @Dom Malerba enjoyed a Beaujolais tonight with @Jeni and @Janell. Really just getting started on Beaujolais and loving every second of it. Had that nice cherry component but was also very soft and enjoyable. — 21 days ago

Rochegrès Moulin-à-Vent Gamay

Gamay rather discreet at first sight: nose and attack in the mouth. it is a wine that imposes itself gently without seeming to it. light, with black fruit and candied (cherry, plums), generous floral flavors .. its duration in the mouth is quite extraordinary, each sips bringing depth and relief, with a nice acidity, and tannins of great flexibility. Drink slighly refreshed — a month ago

Stunning nose. Takes a bit of coaxing but when it does, OH MY. Deep, dark, soil tones, super mineral, dark blackberry fruit, raspberry coulis, insane licorice. Palate is extraordinary. So pure and so deep, wonderful freshness and amazing dense but sappy and energetic fruit. Such impressive structure and purity. So clean. Finish is amazing and lasts and lasts. Floral and insane inner mouth aromas and juicy as all can be. The texture, the noble ripe tannins and are the standouts. As well as the creamy mid palate that finishes so juicy and so full of tiny dark berry fruit intensity. The finish surges with mineral and soil tones. That granite pops. One of the best MAV I’ve ever had. — 2 months ago
