As Close to Burgundy as Beaujolais Gets!
(just tasted)

92 points Vinous Media
The 2021 Moulin-à-Vent Vieilles Vignes de 1903 is aged for 12 months in foudre. It has a wonderful nose of crushed stone and iris petal commingling with blackberry and strawberry fruit. Impressive delineation. The palate is medium-bodied with lovely depth and sense of symmetry. There's vibrant red berry fruit with just a touch of reduction on the finish that will be addressed by bottle age. This is worth hunting down.

Ok, besides being one of the closest Cru to Burgundy in Beaujolais, the style of this wine gets you there too! Moulin-A-Vent for me of all the villages has the highest tendency to cloak as it's more prestigious (and much more expensive) northerly neighbor!

The other day we tasted this beauty from vines planted 119 years from the vintage! We loved it so much we added a slot to the shelf and have it available for pickup now! I highly recommend this for its purity, depth, and utter deliciousness. It has a nose that just does not quit with a gorgeous perfume that pulls you in to stay! It is red wine chilling weather and Beaujolais Cru is hard to beat for that, so grab some while it lasts!

  • Soils: Decomposed pink granite (“gores”), veins of blue clay and manganese.
  • 100% “Gamay noir à jus blanc” with vines planted in 1903
  • Organic farming. Traditional working of the soil. Manual interventions. No pesticides, herbicides or phytosanitary products are used.
  • Winemaking: Semi-Carbonic maceration (whole cluster) with native yeasts 18 days, in concrete vats with daily pump-over. Aging during 9 months in neutral French oak casks.

My Tasting Note: Ruby core, lighter ruby edges. A gorgeous and intoxicating perfume wafts up from the glass with a melange of red berries, cherries, subtle spices, violets and wild flowers, no doubt granite tones of minerality from the soils that birth this beauty! This is the best Beaujolais and best value we have tasted so far this year! Medium bodied on the palate, the flavor intensity is high, densely flavored, but light as a feather with a long, pretty and perfumed finish.
