    Winemaker's Notes:

    Like Morgon, Brouilly or Fleurie, Moulin-a-Vent is a Cru of Beaujolais. On the top of a little hill and in the middle of the vines, one can still admire the "moulin a vent" (wind mill) that gave its name to the area. The mill is now 300 years old, but the vines have been cultivated here for a much longer time : the Romans could already appreciate the wine produced here. The soil is complex: granite with a high proportion of manganese ; the Gamay grape grows well on this soil. Moulin-a-Vent can be favourably compared to the wines of Cote d'or. It has good concentration and a great ability for ageing. The colour is deep purple and the nose shows intense fruit with spicy, ripe aromas. On the palate, the tannins are perceptible but elegant. The finish is long.
