I love the black-raspberry aroma of this youthful and well-structured Moulin-a-Vent, but it’s quite a daring wine. It’s going to take some time for these generous, but fine-grained tannins to fully integrate, but they already give the wine so much drive and length. Drinkable now, but best from 2024. ...

Winery
100% Gamay. The cru of Moulin-à-Vent is generally considered the source of the potentially longest-lived, most structured Beaujolais. Here Jean-Paul farms 4 hectares of 30-to-45-year-old vines whose roots break through the compact, old granite rock underlying the sandy granite topsoils. As for all Terres Dorées reds, the vinification is traditional Burgundian. The grapes are rigorously sorted and destemmed, crushed and fermented with indigenous yeasts and no sulfur. Maceration lasts up to 6 weeks, the longest of all of the wines (along with the Grille Midi Fleurie). The Moulin-à-Vent is the only one to be aged in oak (old, small barrels), for up to 10 months. Bottled with a light filtration and a small amount of sulfur.

Region: Burgundy

The beautiful region of Burgundy in France is famously home to some of the most exquisite red wines to be found anywhere on earth, and is most commonly associated with the silky, elegant and flavorful Pinot Noir varietal wines which are commonly produced there. However, the superb and mineral rich soils fed by the Rhone river, and the long hot summers and mild autumns of the region produce a wide variety of fine grapes, and as such, Burgundy produces plenty of different wines which are equally as good as the produce the region is famed for. The region of Burgundy itself has a wine-making history which stretches back at least two thousand years, and as such, it comes as no surprise that the wineries which fill the dozens of controlled appellations of the region rely heavily on traditional methods and techniques when it comes to producing their famous wines.

Country: France

It is widely understood and accepted that the finest wines in the world come out of France. Whether you are drinking a vintage bottle from one of the famed Grand Cru wineries of Bordeaux - such as Chateau Margaux or Chateau Lafite-Rothschild - or a more simple and affordable bottle from one of the lesser known appellations in Burgundy, the likelihood is that the wine is packed full of intense and interesting flavors, and has a fine, balanced structure typical of almost all French produce. This reputation for excellence is taken extremely serious by the French, with dozens of regularly updated laws and regulations ensuring the quality and accurate labeling of wines. Such dedication and passion for fine wine, representative of the region in which it is produced, means customers can be assured that when they buy a bottle from France, they are buying something almost certain to please and delight.
