August 201092+ Elderberry, blueberry, and marrow rich beef stock dominate Brun's 2009 Moulin-a-Vent (from two parcels, one toward Chenas, and one toward Fleurie), which I caught up with in June soon after its bottling. Brown spice, fruit seeds, rose hip, and chalky, somehow ore-like, stony impingements make for a vivid sort of complexity, informing a finish of vibrant, interactive intensity. Noticeable dissolved CO2 - while it needs to (and almost certainly will) settle down a bit - also adds to the tactile intensity and sense of vivacity exhibited here, a legacy Brun considers conducive to longevity and important due to his low dosage of sulfur. This dynamic, palate staining cru offers exceptional value and the promise of at least 6-8 years of fascinating evolution.
February 28, 201192 This lush, creamy red has vibrant acidity bolstering its ripe cherry, raspberry jam and fruitcake flavors, with sublayers of anise and clove and a thread of smoky mineral. Shows light grip, with lovely balance overall. Drink now through 2020. 250 cases imported.

February 201191 Bright purple. Black raspberry, cherry and cinnamon on the nose, with floral and mineral qualities adding complexity. Spicy, firm and tightly wound, opening slowly to offer ripe red fruit and floral pastille flavors and a nervy mineral spine. The most restrained of this set, finishing with impressive grip, a slight warmth and a persistent note of smoky minerals.
