Strong reduction flattens the nose. Otherwise there is good richness to the fleshy and relatively forward middle weight flavors that possess good punch and detail on the well-balanced finish. (88-91)/2019+ Drinking range: - 2019 Rating: 88-91 Allen Meadows, 2016)

The 2014 Moulin à Vent le Rouchaux was totally reduced on the nose, although the palate is clearly adorned with precise, red and black fruit, perhaps more understated and nuanced than the les Perrelles. I like the focus on the finish here, moderate length and yet detailed. Drinking range: 2017 - 2025 Rating: 89-91 Neal Martin, 2015)

Domaine Thibault Liger-Belair, Beaujolais

Domaine Thibault Liger-Belair have purchased eight prime parcels of vines in Moulin-a-Vent. The grapes were sold off in 2008 because they felt it took more than just one year working with the vines to get them to perform. 'My objective was not to buy a domaine, but to buy vineyards in different spots. What is very important for me', says Liger-Belair,'is to showcase the difference between each type of granite and each exposure.' Two refrigerated trucks a day delivered fruit to be pressed in Nuits-Saint-Georges (all destemmed in the 2009 vintage and only gently pumped over to 'infuse', never punched down) and raised in used barriques.
