Profile

Smell

Layered and complex on the nose, with high-toned notes of tart red cherry and fresh raspberry. There's a hint of cedar, along with violet, wet stone, and black tea. More savoury, herbaceous nuances emerge with air, so take your time with this lovely Moulin-à-Vent!

Taste

Medium-bodied and pure, with plenty of ripe red fruit (think cranberry, cherry and red currants). The tannins are soft and developed, and the finish is long and highlighted by a fresh, well-rounded acidity. Still very youthful and bright, this wine is a good candidate for the cellar, where it will start to develop more savoury, earthy notes.

Pairing

Gamay is one of the world's most versatile red wines, but this Moulin-à-Vent would be a beautiful match pan-seared duck or herb-roasted, bone-in pork loin.

Aromas and Flavours

Raspberry

Tangy or sweet, juicy or tart: more sophisticated than a strawberry, but just as lush.

Cherry

Fresh B.C. cherries out of the back of a truck, all eaten before you can get them home!

Strawberry

A sweet, almost caramel-like aroma reminiscent of your favourite juicy, red berry.

Rose

'A rose by any other name would smell as sweet.' We should all stop and smell them more often...

Stone

Remember playing with pebbles as a child and giving them a lick out of curiosity?

Description

Château des Moriers is a small, 7th-generation family-owned estate producing wine in Fleurie and Moulin-à-Vent, two of Beaujolais' most prestigious crus. Production is minimal - a total of only 5,000 cases spread across 12 releases. Their Moulin-à-Vent is sourced from 80-year-old vines, which provide remarkable concentration in the finished wine.

If you've never come across this appellation, Moulin À Vent is one of Beaujolais' ten named crus, or communes, singled out for producing exceptional expressions of Gamay Noir. Each cru has its own distinctive character, with Moulin À Vent being considered the most full-bodied in style, with wines of greater concentration and ageability. You won't find much in common with the widely-known, simple, and fruity Beaujolais Nouveau. Instead, these are distinctive wines, some of which can be cellared for upwards of 50 years.

This remarkable 2014 release is ready to be enjoyed now and will continue to age gracefully for the next 3-4 years. Serve at about 16 C.
