Winemaker's Notes

On the top of a little hill and in the middle of the vines, one can still admire the "moulin à 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: since the time of the Romans.

Moulin-à-Vent can be favorably compared to the wines of Côte d'Or because of its good concentration and great ability for aging. In fact, thanks to its tannins, Moulin-à-Vent may age 7 to 15 years depending on its vintage.

The color 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.

Versatile with all kinds of food, especially simple and flavorful dishes such as hors- d'oeuvres, charcuterie and white meats. Serve slightly cool.

Those are usually the Cru Beaujolais and are...

Learn About Gamay

Gamay (gah-MAY) Beaujolais' Baby Gamay is a pale colored grape, best associated with the region of Beaujolas. In fact, few regions or grapes are so wholly intertwined with one another. After being universally rejected by the rest of Burgundy in the 14th century, Gamay found its niche a bit further south, in Beaujolais. Beyond that part of France, Gamay can also be...
