Joseph Drouhin Moulin-A-Vent 2007

Joseph Drouhin Moulin-A-Vent 750ml 2007   
Sku: 14885

Like Morgon, Brouilly or Fleurie, Moulin--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 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 ; the Gamay grape grows well on this soil. Moulin--Vent can be favourably compared to the wines of Cte d`or. It has good concentration and a great ability for ageing. The colour is deep purple and the nose shows intense fruit with spicy, ripe aromas. On the palate, the tannins are perceptible but elegant. The finish is long.

Technical notes
Site: one of the oldest vineyards of Beaujolais, itis located high up on a hill and surrounds an ancient wind-mill. History & tradition: the name comes from the wind-mill (moulin a vent in French), which is 300 years old. The vineyard was already cultivated by the Romans. Soil: pink granite with manganese in the subsoil, perfect for Gamay.
