Domaine de la Tour du Bief 'Clos de la Tour' Moulin-a Vent
2009 was a knockout year in Burgundy, so here is a taste of Beaujolais from a single village to get you started. Moulin-A-Vent tends to produce longer lived Beaujolais made from gamay, a cousin of pinot noir. Aromas of strawberries and raspberries fill the air, whilst the palate is light to medium-bodied, bright, soft and approachable with a touch of sweetness upfront, gentle tannins, and a dry finish. These wines tend to be one of the few reds you can drink with spicy food due to their mellow nature.
Domaine de la Tour Wine Reviews and Accolades
‘This is quite pretty & while overtly ripe, it’s not over the top in the fashion of some 09 Beaujolais that I have tasted. There is good vibrancy and detail to the menthol-suffused flavours that display enough finishing warmth to be clearly noticeable.
