"The 2013 Moulin-à-Vent from Xavier et Nicolas Barbet is a lovely example of this very classic, low fat vintage, wafting from the glass in a fine aromatic constellation of sweet dark berries, a touch of currant leaf, espresso, complex, dark soil tones, pepper and a topnote of bonfires. On the palate the wine is medium-full, focused and still youthfully leafy, with a lovely core and signature of soil, moderate tannins and fine length and grip on the still quite primary and palate-staining finish. This is already quite enjoyable to drink, but it is still a couple of years away from reaching its apogee of peak drinkability. I would be inclined to cellar it for a few more years and really let it start to hit on all cylinders. 2018-2040+." ~JG

Customer Reviews

5/5 stars
A Fall Go-to - Although often overlooked, Beaujolais is the perfect red for the transition into the cooler fall weather. Grown in the pink granite soil of Moulin-a-vent, this medium bodied red exhibits bright cherry notes as well as characteristics of tobacco and tanned leather. Tannic structure suggests that this wine shouls age well until 2020 but is certainly ready to drink now.
