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

Quintessential and typical of Moulin a Vent. Sour fruit, barnyard mid palate, dry, spicy, tannic finish. Nice beaujolais.

Deep, dense. Dark berry preserves and that smell of rain on asphalt. Fruit is pure. Need toast to spread this on. Tannic AF. Awesome.
