Ahhh we often long for wines like this to bring home on a Friday after a long week. A beautifully integrated Gamay that is built to last that hails from a vintner who literally makes this one wine. This is a wine with soul that is ready to drink now, especially if given a little time to breathe. Its savory notes are complex and deep showing hints of smoke, forest floor, and bright cherry fruits. It's perfectly focused and energized - ready for you to pop the cork and dive in.

Wine Advocate

The 2020 Moulin-à-Vent Vieilles Vignes has turned out brilliantly, bursting with aromas of cherries, cassis, sweet spices, rose petals and orange rind. Medium to full-bodied, rich and concentrated, it's gourmand but remarkably elegant, with powdery tannin, lively acids and a seamless, charming profile. As readers will remember, this ultra-traditional cuvée is mostly whole cluster and sees a classic two-week maceration with submerged cap before maturation in foudre.
