Moulin-à-vent is a French red wine with controlled designation of origin produced straddling the border between the departments of Rhône and Saône-et-Loire. The appellation covers part of the communes of Chénas and Romanèche-Thorins, in the Beaujolais vineyards.
When the wind communicates with the earth.
Its name comes from an ancient mill, sometimes quiet, sometimes driven by the wind, planted for ages on a hill in Romanèche-Thorins. It owes its nobility of character to a granite subsoil rich in manganese.
Its dark ruby color promises aromas of iris, wilted rose, spices and ripe fruit. Full-bodied wine for keeping, it is worthy of being among the greatest.
Don't we say that the Moulin à Vent is the “Lord of Beaujolais”?
