The Moulin-à-Vent appellation is located at the southernmost tip of Burgundy. Château du Moulin-à-Vent dates back to 1732 and is located only 200 meters away from the historic windmill. Today, the domain picks 75 acres of vines in the intermediary part of the appellation, between 200 and 300 meters above sea level, around the Château, the windmill and the hamlet of ‘Les Thorins’.
Crimson in color. 13% ABV. Pretty nose of red fruits, soil and spice. Medium body with ample acidity. Elegant and charming. Cherries, strawberries, spice, earth and a hint of vanilla on the palate. Delightful Gamay Beaujolais. Medium length on the finish. Well made and supremely easy to drink. Best over the next 2-4 years.

Review based on a sample provided by the wineries distributor, Wilson Daniels. Previous vintages have sold for slightly over $40 per bottle.
