2017 Domaine Louis Boillot Beaujolais (Gamay) "Moulin-a-Vent Beaujolais, France
A phenomenal Beaujolais from the big cru Moulin a Vent. Dense, even for this cru, but still a wine that falls into a medium to lighter category. And as ever, this is Louis’s richest and most serious wine, displaying a nose of rich, black fruit and savory spice. There is still wonderful purity, along with an enormous density of black cherry fruit at the core. The structure is equally dense and present, but is balanced by the softness in the mid-palate. Once again, the lingering impression is one of freshness and energy.
