|Chateau du Moulin a Vent
The 2018 Moulin-à-Vent is a sumptuous, wonderfully expressive wine. Blue/purplish fruit, lavender, licorice and spice all flesh out in a racy Beaujolais endowed with terrific richness. The 2018 can be enjoyed now, but it also has the richness to age gracefully in the cellar for years to come. Readers who enjoy wines with more complexity will certainly want to wait a bit. The 30% whole clusters are not especially evident.
A selection from the three top vineyards in the estate, this wine is rich and still young. Serious tannins give the wine structure. Partial oak aging adds richness and spice, improving the potential for aging. Drink from 2022.
Smooth tannins encase cherry and licorice-infused raspberry flavors in this light-to-medium bodied red, with accents of rose petal, blood orange and cedar lingering on the finish. Drink now through 2029. 6,000 cases made, 1,500 cases imported.
