The Louis Jadot Moulin à Vent is a full, robust Beaujolais, with a fleshy, almost fat texture and greater longevity than any other Cru of the Beaujolais. The exceptional quality of its structure preserves a fruitiness which becomes mellow with bottle age.
This is a robust, flavorful Beaujolais with concentrated fruitiness and hint of dark chocolate. Let it breathe for an hour, its worth the wait. I have tried other Beaujolais' in the past, this one is true to the tasting notes and worth gathering.
Deep ruby color and a direct fragrance of red and black berries, spice and pepper lead into this wine's concentrated palate of sweet, ripe, crushed fruit and moderately firm tannins offset by a fresh, balanced acidity
Wine Maker Notes

The soil is typically granitic. The Moulin à Vent wine is now referred to as the «King of Beaujolais», and is considered to be the most Burgundian Cru of Beaujolais.
