Wine of the Week AU

Georges Duboeuf Moulin-à-Vent 2014, Beaujolais, AUD $30

A highly engaging Beaujolais from the AOC of Moulin-à-Vent that has depth and fleshiness, as well a dark red hue and characteristic light body. The flavours are in the dark fruit spectrum; scented plums and black cherries, with an overlay of regional violet. Alongside the intense fruit is a lovely savouriness plus gently drying, fine tannin. A very expressive wine with richness and heady perfume. (Cork)
