About the wine

Moulin à Vent is called King of Beaujolais. This is the Cru with the longest cellaring potential and which is closest to its Burgundian neighours. As it ages, it is sometimes said to “pinote”. This cuvée is the expression of the alliance between finesse and power.
Ranking RVF: 16/20

Tasting notes

Eye - Deep, shiny, limpid ruby with crimson tints: very thick tears.

Nose - Intense with red fruit scents that include raspberry, cherry, blackberry and blackcurrant, partnered by hints of violet and iris.

Palate - Refined and racy with a full rounded and fleshy juicy fruit attack. Mellow, creamy tannins give a suave, velvety texture. Great complexity of flavors.

Classic Food Pairing

All meats and poultry. It’s a great partner to dishes with morel mushroom and camembert or matured Saint Marcelin cheese.

Background Winery

Domaine Chermette is a family-run wine estate. The Estate is in the Pierres Dorees Golden stone area, in southern Beaujolais. Martine, Pierre Marie and Jean Etienne Chermette make red, rose and white Beaujolais Wines. Most of their Wines are produced from old vines, including Beaujolais Primeur. Both in tending the vines and in vinification, we intervene as little as possible and develop the following methods: integrated agriculture, manual harests, successive sorting of the grapes, no use of chemically produced yeasts. This is the traditional Beaujolais vinification method.

We then obtain a perfectly ripe and healthy grape so we can make really natural wine. We use this method because it is perfectly adapted to the gamay grape and our terroir.
