The 2009 Moulin-à-Vent is in an ideal place for drinking now. Sweet red cherry, tobacco, spice, earthiness dried herbs, mint and licorice are the signatures of a wine that is starting to show the signs of aromatic and flavor maturity. Even so, the 2009 retains a good bit of freshness and punch. Readers who look to explore Beaujolais with bottle age will adore the 2009. It was done with destemmed fruit and aged 80% in oak and 20% in stainless steel.

“An exceptional, elegant wine with a noticeable amount of depth — perhaps the fullest Cru du Beaujolais I have had. Presents flavors of black cherry at times, raspberry at others, as well as aromas that recall leather, forest and sand.”

"Bright violet color. Pungent aromas of dried cherry, anise, musky herbs and underbrush, with a sexy floral note emerging with air. Deep bitter cherry and licorice flavors are given spine and energy by tangy acidity."

"...This is a broad shouldered robust Moulin-à-Vent, reflective of the warmth and ideal growing conditions of the vintage. It’s a firm--almost chewy--wine with moderate, but polished, tannins that make it a terrific choice for a hearty fall meal."
