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 wines which come out of the Burgundy region of France are regularly hailed as amongst the finest in the world, with the area now being synonymous with quality red wines of exceptional flavor, character and aroma. However, Burgundy is no newcomer to the world of fine wines, with the earliest recordings of the quality of this region's produce dating back to the 6th century, and archaeological evidence suggesting that vineyards had been cultivated there for over two thousand years. Today, there are dozens of controlled appellations within Burgundy, each producing exceptional wines typical of the region. The whole area benefits greatly from hot summers and mild, long autumnal periods, which, when coupled with the generations of expertise of the wineries in Burgundy, consistently produces superb wines for the world's enjoyment.

Country: France

French winemakers are subjected to several laws and regulations regarding the wines they produce, and how they can be labeled and sold. Such procedures are designed to increase the overall quality of the country's produce, and also to ensure that wines made in each particular region or appellation are of a character and type which is representative of the area. Thankfully for consumers of wine world-wide, the French have a particularly high reputation to uphold, and seem to do so flawlessly. Every year, wineries from all over France produce millions upon millions of bottles of fine wine, making the most of their native grape varieties and the excellent terrain which covers most of the country. From the expensive and exquisite red wines of Bordeaux and Burgundy, to the white wines and cremants of central France, the French are dedicated to providing the world with wines of the highest quality and most distinctive character.
