+ GRAPES: Sustainable. 100% Gamay from the Moulin A Vent Cru - one of 10 in Beaujolais.
+ PROFILE: Dry, serious, silky. Rocky blackberry tones, dark cherry, velvety tannins. Exceptional value.
+ GROWING: Old vine (30-45 years). They are midslope on a hill near the famous windmill for which Moulin-à-Vent was named. The ancient metamorphic soils are decomposed pink granite with heavy clay into which the roots go very deep toward the underlying hard granite rock.
+ VINIFICATION: Traditional Burgundian: hand-harvested bunches are destemmed and fermented with native yeasts and without sulfur in concrete.
