Moulin-à-Vent, Beaujolais, Burgundy, France
Deep ruby red in color with purple reflections. Distinctive black berry notes with a hint of licorice. On the palate the wine is fruity, with sweet violet candy and notes of spice. Savory, long finish with fresh and soft tannins. -Winemaker's Notes
95pts - James Suckling
"A big and powerful Beaujolais from this warm vintage. It sits in the palate like a dense and rich Hermitage. Full-bodied, layered and rich. So much fruit and ripe tannins. Goes on for minutes. Drink or hold."
91pts - Vinous
"Deep ruby. Suave, mineral-accented aromas of ripe dark berries, cherry pie and incense, lent spiciness by a peppery element. Plush and expansive on the palate, offering concentrated black raspberry and boysenberry flavors that become livelier with air. A refreshing jolt of acidity enlivens a supple, fruit-driven finish that hangs on with impressive persistence."
