95 point, “The 2015 Moulin-à-Vent is a real showstopper. A burst of dark cherry, spice, leather, menthol, licorice and leather literally races out of the glass. The 2015 is an atypically rich Moulin-à-Vent, but all the elements are so well balanced. It has serious depth and the intensity to age for many years. I would not touch a bottle soon.”

93 point, Wine & Spirits: “There’s black raspberry richness at the center of this wine, concentrated within tannins that draw their power from both grape skins and oak. Brice Laffond destems this fruit, then cold-soaks it with pumpovers before and after fermentation, so there’s no carbonic maceration of the berries. Then he ages it for a year and a half in oak barrels. The barrel spice comes across in notes of cumin and coriander, charred meat and clove, while the fruit is powerful enough to outlast it with generous umami grace. For the cellar.”

92 point, “Mineralsk næse med mørke bær, kultiveret let ristet egetræ og afrundet præg. Delikat krydret, ren og præcis aromaprofil. Rank, let og elegant. I munden med frisk bærfrugt, markant syrebid og endnu stram tannin. Mineralsk, sprød vin med velpoleret struktur. God sødmefuld frugtkarakter og saftig, elegant eftersmag. Stilistisk tættere på pæn Côte De Nuits end Beaujolais. Lovende, så gem den tre-fire år.”

92 point og “Must-try red”, Decanter: “From one of the most serious and ageworthy of the 10 Beaujolais crus, this Gamay is made in quite a modern stye, showcasing generous and vibrant dark cherry fruit supported by a firm tannic frame and fine acidity. The complex palate is layered, textured and structured which suggests you could cellar it for several years, but it has enough ample fruit to be enjoyed now.”

91 point, Wine Spectator: “Strawberry compote and cherry tart notes are kept focused by fresh acidity that accentuates the fragrant rose petal, mineral and spice elements in this medium-bodied red. Spice and mineral details echo on the moderately tannic finish.”

Kåret som Top-10 domæne af Guide Bettane & DesseauveChâteau du Moulin-à-Vent has became in a few years an obvious reference of its appellation with a relevant range of wines, all of excellent quality. The 2014 vintage had taken a nice turn with more elegance, less power. This trend was confirmed with the 2015. Their power is perfectly mastered, their finesse well shown. Our intuition was the good one: this domain is one of the grand of Beaujolais, with an homogeneous level of excellent quality.”

Slottets Moulin à Vent byder på en intens næse med et touch af eg og en mineralsk, dyb og koncentreret smag, med en lang, kompleks finish. Som Bourgogne guruen, Allen Meadows, udtrykker det, så er vinene fra Château du Moulin à Vent i klasse for sig: “Imposing wine and is not even remotely close to the fruity and exuberant Beaujolais of popular image.
