Without a doubt, the floral labels of Georges Dubeouf make them the most recognisable and loved Beaujolais producer in the world.
An intense colour that fluctuates between deep ruby and dark garnet. The Moulin-à-Vent reveals floral and fruity aromas dominated by violets and supported by a hint of cherry. Tannic, fleshy and subtly spicy, the Moulin-à-Vent develops complex flavours that combine finesse and harmony.
Very pretty blackberries, blueberries and violets on the nose with a medium to full body, firm and chewy tannins and a long, flavorful finish. Rating: 93 Points; James Suckling
DuBoeuf likes to say that because its business started at the foot of a windmill (moulin à vent) they needed to present the best of the best under the Moulin-à-Vent appellation. It would seem they are doing just that with this stunning gamay that is drier and firmer and tighter than any other labels. A mix of plums and blackberries bolster the mid-palate while the floral stony mineral notes support the finish. No rush here; it is easily ready to age to 2025 and beyond.

Bright violet. Ripe blue fruits and candied flowers on the nose and in the mouth. Supple, gently sweet and open-knit, showing good clarity and a hint of spiciness on the back half. Soft tannins sneak in late on a smooth, nicely persistent finish that leaves a jammy boysenberry note behind. Drink: 2021 - 2027; Josh Raynolds; Vinous
