Didier Desvignes Domaine Du Calvaire De Roche-Gres Moulin-A-Vent Terre De Manganese, in its heavy bottle with its elegant wax closure, suggests from the outset an altogether more serious wine than Didier Desvignes' regular cuvées. The colour is atypically deep for a Beaujolais and the nose initially offers balsamic and feral aromas before opening up with ripe cherry fruit and touches of oak spice. The palate, as you might expect, shows greater extraction and concentration than many a Beaujolais, displaying opulent dark cherry fruit, delicate spice and nicely integrated oak. Although very drinkable already, this ageworthy Beaujolais has the capacity to evolve into something really quite Burgundian over the next five to ten years.

Didier Desvignes produces this from 80 year old vines growing in the best plots of manganese-rich soil of his Moulin-À-Vent vineyards. Aged for a year oak casks, this complex and powerful Beaujolais is a tour-de-force for the region, expertly balancing the freshness of Gamay, the unique minerality of the soil and the richness of barrel ageing.
