2013 Domaine les Fines Graves Moulin A Vent
“Deep, brooding and quite Burgundian in nature, the Domaine des Fines Graves Moulin a Vent is one of the most masculine and age worthy of all Beaujolais wines. In typical Moulin-a-Vent fashion, Janodet’s wines are rich, concentrated and brooding, requiring some coaxing before the lush, velvet deep cherry and Kirsch flavors.”
Few could deny that the Janodet wines are in a class of their own as far as Beaujolais is concerned. All the wines, but especially the Moulin à Vent, have a very fine subtle texture. Aromas of truffles and sweet cherries. On the palate, they are fat, rich and intense but at the same time soft and harmonious.
Robert Parker in his book "Burgundy" mentions that from Janodet he has had "some sensational bottles of incredibly rich, crunchy, concentrated, lush and velvety Moulin à Vent". More recently the Moulin à Vent 1991 was the leading wine in a tasting sponsored by Gault-Millau in France, with 18.5 points out of 20. They finish their tasting notes with the blint but evocative statement "Grand Vin" !
