Moulin-a-Vent – Cru Beaujolais

TASTING NOTES:

“Great breed. Beautiful dark garnet color. Intense and elegant aromas, with notes of peony, tea rose and damson plum, often with nuances of licorice. On the palate, beautiful structure, velvety texture (“gras”) and majesty. The aftertaste is long, refined and appetizing in a subdued way. The Cru of Beaujolais that is the closest in style to the Burgundies of the Côte d’Or”. – Véronique Boss-Drouhin

Description

Joseph Drouhin
Moulin-a-Vent
Cru Beaujolais

 

 

DESCRIPTION:

    • Like Morgon, Brouilly or Fleurie, Moulin-à-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 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: the Romans could already appreciate the wine produced here.
    • The soil is complex: granite with a high proportion of manganese and the Gamay grape grows well on this soil.
    • Moulin-à-Vent can be favorably compared to the wines of Côte d’Or.
    • It has good concentration and a great ability for aging.

GRAPE VARIETY:

    • 100% Gamay

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