Ripe, juicy cherries and a bit of game on the nose. Tertiary flavors on the palate though: earthy notes, game, dried cherries. Quite tannic but with good acidity to keep it alive and kicking. Interesting mix, but balance and integration? Hmmm.

Lovely robust Moulin à Vent that shows the richness of wick gamay is capable. Medium body, ripe tannins and medium acidity this is a lively food wine at full maturity

Strawberries rolled in dirt. And I can’t get enough. This isn’t the Jadot Beaujolais that I bought in my early 20s - this is incredible!! INCREDIBLE.

Also 2009--showing young and more heft than the Fleurie, but not as interesting as its brother.

A unicorn wine. Love a bit of bottle age on cru Beaujolais.

2008. Ravishing-I like it a lot. Like a round, fresh, terroir-driven candy I can't get enough of.

2009. Wow is this Burgundian! Plum skin, kirsch liqueur, intense, bold notes of baking spice and sweet smoke. All stainless and neutral oak aging. Very serious Gamay, high acid, grip and age worthy qualities. I love this!
