ready-improve2016 Moulin à Vent, La Rochelle, Olivier Merlin, Beaujolais

Product: E2925B
  • Ready, but will keep

Description

Recent vintages of Olivier's Moulin-à-Vent wines have shown a move to a more elegant, less-extracted style, reducing the proportion of new oak That is not to say, however, that he has lost any of the classic pink granite expression for which Moulin-à-Vent is famous. From vines mostly planted in 1937, there is a real energy and concentration here. Rich red fruit combines with smoky pepper notes and a gorgeous floral perfume, while the stony tannins and incredible length point to great ageing potential. Drink 2020-2028.
