Um belo Moulin-à-Vent! Ainda que esteja um pouco novo aos 5! Revelou uma bonita cor rubi brilhante razoavelmente translúcida. Ao nariz, ainda meio primário, focado em frutas vermelhas mas, após respirar bem, apareceram apreciáveis toques de terra e hortelã. Na boca é delicioso! Some da taça num piscar de olhos! Leve, equilibrado, elegante, com fruta limpa, acidez refrescante na medida, tanicidade discreta.. Muito agradável agora, mas provavelmente mais complexo a partir de 2017.. Pretendo ver!
Jadot Chateau des Jacques Beaujolais (London): Signature black fruit and fine tannins - impressive depth for a stupid stupid low price - again, I would struggle to name Gamay as the grape - this is more pinot noir from Marsannay. £13 of utter "i am pretending this is £50 burgundy" pleasure.
I like this but would be really pushed to spot it as a Gamay - it has that Bourogone level Burgundy twang to it, but smoother (and better?). Is it a bad thing? Well, I'm getting a lovely Burg/Beaujolais zip going on for £10 so in my opinion it is not a bad thing. From a purist point of view I am not so sure. Lovely stuff though.
