93pts Antonio Galloni's Vinous

The Xavier & Nicolas Barbet Moulin-a-Vent Vieilles Vignes was our pairing last night for an Italian style pork shoulder roast braised in milk with garlic, rosemary, sage and lemon peel. Putting it mildly, it was a memorable partnership. A salad of colorful raddichios was delicious opposite the ripe fruit in the wine. This bottle from the Barbet brothers punches well above its price point and is just the ticket for a cold winter night's meaty fare, roasted, braised and stewed. Bon appetit winelovers!

Antonio Galloni's Vinous: "Opaque bright-rimmed ruby. Powerful, mineral-accented black raspberry, cherry and floral oil aromas show very good clarity and a spicy touch of white pepper. Chewy and expansive in the mouth, offering gently sweet dark berry, cherry compote and spicecake flavors that pick up a hint of smokiness with air. Dusty tannins build slowly through the long, smoky finish, where the cherry and floral notes repeat. Drink 2020-2028.” Oct 2019

Winery: "It is a complex and structured wine. With its dark red colour, its aromas of stewed fruits and undergrowth and a well-matured and charming taste, this wine will accompany roasted meats or pates perfectly."

Trade Notes: "Beautiful aromatics with notes of violets, juicy cherry and supple tannins with structure."
