Has nice elements but needs a little bit more fruit.

Deep red purple in the glass. Nose of black cherry and black raspberry, echoed on the palate where it's shored up by black leather jacket. Medium firm tannins, especially assertive on the moderate finish. Could probably handle cellaring for a bit, but this is where it should be now. Drink by 2017.

Surprisingly tannic, without enough fruit to handle it. Almost wonder if I got a bad bottle.

Good bottle of Cru Beaujolais but could use a bit more time.

2010 Vintage. First wine brought in by Kermit Lynch that I truly did not enjoy.

This is from the northern part of Beaujolais whose reputation has been harmed by the nouveau crap that is half made wine. The crus of this part of burgundy are making some of the best values in France. Kermit has also helped put beajolaise on the map with his group of 4. Moulin a vent one of the longest lived of all the crus along with Morgon. A nice peppery spice to the wild strawberry jam like fruit a bit of barnyard like quality and some green notes but very balanced. Very rich and layered on the palate very well built with wonderful concentration of red and black berry fruit excellent

Too young, really. My fault for not sitting on this one longer.
