The Wine Advocate
Mingling notes of cherries and mulberries with hints of dark chocolate, rose petals and spices, the 2018 Moulin-à-Vent Les Rouchaux is medium to full-bodied, with an ample core of fruit, lively acids and fine-grained, chalky tannins and a long, flavorful finish.
One of a growing number of Côte d'Or producers to acquire land in the Beaujolais, Louis Boillot—whose wines I taste every year in the cellars in Chambolle-Musigny that he shares with his spouse, Ghislaine Barthod—is producing superb examples of Moulin-à-Vent and Fleurie. Classically vinified and given an unusually long élevage by the standards of the region, these are serious, elegantly muscular cru Beaujolais built to age with grace, and they come warmly recommended. Of course, with the hail of 2016 and 2017, nature was unkind to Boillot's appellations, but he rolled with the punches admirably. In 2018, he opted to harvest early, and the results are very promising.
