Winemaker Notes

The Moulin à Vent "Clos de Rochegrès" has a very nice garnet-red color with crimson tints. It releases very fine aromas of flowers (rose) with a touch of mineral. The wine is generous and tender on the palate thanks to the elegant and long lasting tannins. This wine will perfectly match red meats in sauce, game and most cheeses.

Critical Acclaim

JS 94
James Suckling
Extremely rich aromas of crushed ripe berries and hints of forest fruit. Stones, too. Dense, full-bodied, mineral and creamy with a stoney undertone. Crazy wine. Great Beaujolais.
WE 93
Wine Enthusiast
From this always impressive estate, owned by Louis Jadot in Beaune, this wine is richly structured and dense. With some wood aging, it has an extra ripeness and tannic concentration. This cru wine with its tight texture and minerality will age. Drink from 2018.
Cellar Selection
WS 90
Wine Spectator
A well-meshed red, with layers of plum compote, anise and blackberry reduction, edged with milk chocolate, floral and black tea elements. Ample spice notes linger onto the moderately tannic finish. Drink now through 2023.

Beaujolais Wine

Burgundy, France

The bucolic region often identified as the southern part of Burgundy, Beaujolais actually doesn’t have a whole lot in common with the rest of the region in terms of climate, soil types and grape varieties. Beaujolais achieves its own identity with variations on style of one grape, Gamay.

Gamay was actually grown throughout all of Burgundy until 1395 when the Duke of Burgundy banished it south, making room for Pinot noir to inhabit all of the “superior” hillsides of Burgundy proper. This was good news for Gamay as it produces a much better wine in the granitic soils of Beaujolais, compared with the limestone escarpments of the Côte d’Or.

Four styles of Beaujolais exist though most is sold under the basic Beaujolais appellation. The simplest, and one that has regrettably given the region a subpar reputation, is Beaujolais Nouveau. This is the wine that is made using carbonic maceration (a quick fermentation that results in sweet aromas) and is released on the third Thursday of November in the same year as harvest. It's meant to drink young and is flirty, fruity and fun. The rest of Beaujolais is where the serious wines are found. Beaujolais-Villages, which must come from the hilly northern part of the region, offer reasonable values with some gems among them. The superior section are the cru vineyards coming from ten distinct communes: St-Amour, Juliénas, Chénas, Moulin-à-Vent, Fleurie, Chiroubles, Morgon, Regnié, Brouilly, and Côte de Brouilly. Any cru Beajolais will have its commune name prominent on the label.

Delightfully playful, but also capable of impressive gravitas, Gamay is responsible for juicy, berry-packed wines. From Beaujolais, Gamay generally has three classes: Beaujolais Nouveau, a decidedly young, fruit-driven wine, Beaujolais Villages and Cru Beaujolais. The Villages and Crus are highly ranked grape growing communes whose wines are capable of improving with age whereas Nouveau, released two months after harvest, is intended for immediate consumption. Somm Secret—The ten different Crus have their own distinct personalities—Fleurie is delicate and floral, Côte de Brouilly is concentrated and elegant and Morgon is structured and age-worthy.
