Barnyard nose, plenty of funk, opens up to deep red fruit, earthy tones.

Deep and bright fruit, rustic while having fresh carbonic fruit, earth, funk and wet leaves. Nice backbone of acidity.

Black raspberry, cherry, violets. Earthy, floral with some spicy, peppery notes too. Interesting and more depth than the typical lighter bodied Beaujolais

Very good but I wish I had held onto it for another year.

Right up to my Brett limit but some pretty fruit and carbonique character.

Glorious fruit, robust tannins, fresh acidity. Spicy, bright, intense, smoky, mineral. Everything Moulin-à-Vent should be. Youthful exuberance comes off as a bit raw, but give it time and it will be sublime. It’s hard not to get excited about cru Beaujolais at with kind of price-quality factor.

This was really good. While it could definitely benefit from some time in the cellar, it's fun to drink now to experience all of its spunky youth. This is my kind of Gamay.

Rustic and tannic on opening. The fruit comes out with air. A very sturdy Moulin-à-Vent.

Another fine #crubeaujolais Dirty strawberry on the nose, vibrant berries on the palate with substantial tannic structure. Classic #moulinavent
