Postcard from Beaujolais

Posted by: | Comments (3)

We love receiving postcards from our buyers on their travels. This one reads:

Spring in Beaujolais. There’s new growth on old vines on the Côte de Brouilly.

Lovely wines from the 2013 vintage. Am especially thrilled by The Society’s Beaujolais-Villages, not to forget fab Chiroubles from Trenel. Fleurie from Jean-Paul Brun seemed v good. Needs a a little time still. Super Côte de Brouilly from Pavillon de Chavanne. But today belonged to Moulin-à-Vent. Three outstanding properties including Domaine Labruyère and Château de Moulin-à-Vent. All producing wines fully worthy of 1er Cru AOC. Great Moulin à Vent.
