Domaine Labruyere Moulin-a-Vent Le Clos du Moulin-a-Vent Cru du Beaujolais 2013



93pts Wine Enthusiast
Wine Enthusiast: "This is a concentrated structured cru wine from a single vineyard. It has dark tannins and a dense spice character from the wood aging. The fruit is still developing to give the wine its potential richness. Drink this firmly structured wine from 2018. This walled vineyard is wholly owned by producer Edouard Labruyre, making it a monopole." Jan 2017

Winery: "Grapes are hand-picked parcel by parcel as they reach phenolic ripeness and transported to the winery in small 25kg crates to avoid damage. Upon arrival the grapes are sorted twice prior to de-stemming. Vinification begins with a 20-day maceration at cool temperatures in stainless steel and concrete vats prior to aging in the cellars in oak cask.

Powerful and ample on the palate with spicy notes, notably pepper and licorice, slightly roasted and black fruit flavors (black cherry). Rich tannins, spicy and mouth-watering persistent finish."
