Wine of the Week : Domaine Richard Rottiers Moulin à Vent “Climat Champ de Cour” 2008

December 9th, 2010

With all the talk about the 2009 vintage in Beaujolais, which is very well deserved, we had to highlight this 2008 from Richard Rottiers. It is by far the most amazing expression of Moulin a Vent that I have ever tasted. This unique wine comes from 0.80 ha of old vines, which are located in the heart of the renowned ‘Champ de Cour’ terroir. It is surprisingly crisp and complex; it went through a partial CO2 maceration process during 12-15 days, a ten-month aging process in barrels, and is not filtered.

We only imported 25 cases, so and try and get this very limited wine while we still have some.
