The appellation of Moulin-à-Vent is named after a windmill that was built in the late fifteenth century, and remained in active use milling grain until 1850. Shortly afterwards, the domaine in which it stands was bought by the Chastel-Sauzet family, who still remain in charge today in Beaujolais, France.

TASTING NOTES:

Rich yet approachable, this typical Moulin-à-Vent offers up aromas of ripe black fruit and subtle spice. The palate is powerful by Beaujolais standards, but with a lovely finesse and definition that makes it beguiling even when young.

The five hectares of vineyards lie on some of vthe area’sbest terroir, with friable pink granite over the manganese-rich subsoil which gives Moulin-a-vent it’s characteristic power and longevity.
