Wine Notes: In 2014, Louis and his son Clement decided to bring their patient, balanced approach to several old-vine vineyards in Moulin-à-Vent and Fleurie in Beaujolais. This project is quite compelling.
Vintage Notes: "The 2017 vintage is a great success for this small but superb domaine. While Boillot is an experienced vigneron, his first solo vintage for his own label was 2003, and perhaps that's why this address still flies under the radar. But with excellent old vine holdings in top appellations, deft winemaking and a classical aesthetic, readers should take note." - Wine Advocate 1/31/2019
Vine Age: 50+ years
Aging: Moderate percentage of new barrels

"Offering up a lovely bouquet of plums, cherries, violets and candied peel, the 2018 Moulin-à-Vent Vieilles Vignes is medium to full-bodied, layered and satiny, built around beautifully refined tannins and succulent acids. Long and balanced, this has turned out brilliantly."
