Vintages Wine Panel: Single vineyard Moulin-à-Vent Gamay, such as this, are generally more intensely flavored than other beaujolais gamays. Yields are kept to a minimum which results in maximum flavors in the finished wines.This vintage of Champ de Cour exhibits aromas of spring flowers, red berry, black cherry and spice.The wine is exuberant and richly structured. My note: A simple, light wine that's perfect for unanalytical drinking (read: vegging on the sofa in front of the TV). A touch tannic so decant for an hour.

Domaine De Champ De Cour Moulin-À-Vent food pairings: red meats, grilled salmon, grilled swordfish.

Adam Bekhor rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

The 2009 Mommessin Domaine de Champ de Cour is an amazingly fresh red made 100% from the Gamay grape. It has intense flavours of strawberry, red cherries and raspberries. It also has a well integrated spice notes, smooth soft tannins and great acidity. The trick to getting the most out of this wine is to put it in ice bucket for 20 minutes. Chilled Beaujolais is always better than one at room temperature! I would recommend pairing this wine with pastrami, beef stir-fry or chicken lo-mien. As for cheese, I would recommend trying it with a mild cheese like a gouda.

At $19.95, the 2009 Mommessin Domaine de Champ de Cour is a steal. This is another beautiful wine from another underappreciated region…but that’s just my opinion.
