Moulin A Vent, Richard Rottiers, Beaujolais, France, 2020     

Grape: 100% Gamay, 40-80 year old vines, hand picked, from nine different certified organic vineyards on granite soil, partial carbonic maceration, with 6 months ageing in barrels and casks. 

A small (5ha) domaine located in the town of Romaneche-Thorins. Organic since 2012.

A powerful and structured cru du Beaujolais. Violet aroma with an emphasis on the fruit. Spicy tannins rounded by the oak with well integrated tannins. Very long in the mouth.

"The 2020 Moulin-à-Vent bursts with aromas of raspberries, spices and rose petals. Medium to full-bodied, concentrated and vibrant, with lively acids, powdery tannins and a sapid finish, this has turned out brilliantly. It's a benchmark cuvée for the appellation.

One of the region's most dedicated organic farmers, Richard Rottiers has turned in a fine performance in 2020, the latest in a string of high-quality vintages for this emerging Moulin-à-Vent benchmark. At this address, semi-carbonic maceration is followed by élevage in foudre and barrel, depending on the cuvée. Everything reviewed here comes warmly recommended once again."

93/100 points, William Kelley, Wine Advocate, August 2021

 

Great with chicken, grilled meat, cheese, salads.
