Chateau Du Moulin À Vent

Couvent des Thorins Moulin-à-Vent Gamay 2017

Delectable Wine

Opaque ruby. Powerful cherry and blackberry aromas pick up smoky mineral and floral qualities as the wine opens up. Weighty, in the manner of the vintage, but showing very good energy as well, offering gently sweet black currant, cherry and violet pastille flavors that firm up slowly on the back half. Dusty tannins come in late on the finish, which hangs around with suave floral and spice notes. This wine is quite civilized both for the appellation and for the vintage.

Moulin à Vent Dernier Souffle Gamay 2014

Tiny hint of reduction but beyond that it is super floral and with loads of cherry fruit. Iron, very mineral. Elemental stuff. Dusty and very very refined. Hit of licorice. Really alluring nose. Just stunning. These wines give nothing in their youth and then the blossom. Stunningly fresh and vibrant with still some tannic grip but wonderful balance and depth. Saps your palate and tales of over. This is truly on its way to being great. It’s long and saline and has floral echoes on the finish. Profound. But with age, 3-6 more years, this will be lights out. — a month ago

Awesome nose. Finally opening up. Dark cherry and berry fruit and wonderful granite. A sense of deepness and richness as well. Hulking aromas. Super impressive palate with huge juicy black fruits but also top notch finesse and elegance. So complex and mineral with palate staining fruit. So pure. Wow. Big ripe tannins melded with black fruits and so much granite. Finishes with minerals but also a kiss of black cherry and blackberry. Superb balance and refinement while also being a typical big MAV — 2 months ago

Les Michelons Moulin-à-Vent Gamay 2016

Finally found my groove with Gamay! This is delightful - light to medium body with bright acidity. I haven’t tried this wine with every food imaginable but my guess is that if I did, it would pair well with all of it. — 2 months ago

Domaine de Bel-Air Moulin-a-Vent Gamay 2017

The 2017 Cuvée Les Burdelines is outstanding. A very refined effort with fine grained tannin, firm and dense fruit and a lovely sense of lift. It’s a bit tense and tightly wound for drinking now, but it should reward one or two years of patience. — a month ago

Vieilles Vignes Moulin-à-Vent Gamay 2016

Serious Moulin-à-Vent. Tense, firm structure and lingering intensity. Some mild reduction on the nose leads right into raspberries, violets, spice, leather and crushed stones. Mineral-tinged flavors of creme de menth, dark cherries, cocoa and herbs. This is a powerful and elegant bottle that is superb for aging and offering tons of expression right now. Highly recommended if you can find it. — a month ago
