Winemaker's Notes:

"Not your bypical Beaujolais, this Moulin-a-Vent provides the potent expression of its vineyard, a charateristic usually associated with grander wines of the Cote d'Or. Its savory, generous fruit is constricted by powerful, mineral-tinged tannin, the wine closed in on itself and needing years to fully develop. Cellar through 2012 or '13 and then enjoy it with rare roast beef."
