Mid crimson, a little darker than the 2017, and a little darker fruited and opens up in the glass to a darker and more peppery scent, more peony, a little bit like northern Rhône Syrah, as Édouard Parinet points out – and I agree. This has the classic savoury character of Moulin-à-Vent and still the fragrance of thoughtfully made Gamay on granite, a gently dark-earthed aroma. Makes me think of clean, dark friable earth. Dry, elegant and beautifully balanced. Elegant length and dry finely textured finish even though it is still pretty youthful.

Greyish crimson. Lifted dark wild small berries. Fine, dusty tannins that I associate with granite and top-notch beaujolais, and real finesse – paper-fine tannins, wonderful freshness. Tiny little black-berried fruit. Juicy and yet should age. Dark and savoury on the finish but still juicy.

This wine expresses the structure as well as the richly perfumed fruits of the appellation. Its dry core is still present, keeping the wine fresh for its maturity. Let this wine wait a little longer and drink from late 2020.

Brilliant violet color. Pungent, spice-accented red/blue fruit and floral scents are lifted by a smoky mineral nuance that gains strength with air. Offers palate-staining black raspberry, boysenberry and mocha flavors that show excellent clarity and back-end thrust. Finishes sappy, sweet and impressively long, with a repeating floral note and smooth, well-judged tannins.
