Suggestion from October 29 2014
Wine: 2007 Moulin-à-Vent
Producer: Domaine Richard Rottiers
Comment: Quite deeply colored compared to most Beaujolais. An intensely earthy dark berry fruit nose leads to rich, serious, concentrated and relatively powerful medium weight plus flavors that possess excellent mid-palate density and a moderately austere, firm and persistent finish. This possesses first rate material and is absolutely worth a special search for drinking over the medium-term.
Score: 90 Drink: 2011+
