Moulin-à -Vent

Moulin-à -Vent AOC

Gamay

Moulin-à-Vent is known for a more powerful and structured Beaujolais, and this wine will not disappoint that notion. On the nose there are brooding black cherry fruits, black pepper, top soil, and violet flowers. On the palate, the tannins are relaxed but the concentration and depth is clear. The nuanced finish is both broad, friendly, and refreshing. The fullest of the three wines, the fruit is dense but not jammy.

POINTS OF INTEREST

The terroir of Moulin-à-Vent is a blend of several plots located on very old, fine-grained, schist and black granite rock. Along with clay particles that impart strength and power, the wine is thankfully balanced by the limestone which brings freshness and tension. Alexandra makes these wines with ever consideration for terroir; organic and biodynamic farming, native yeast, and no winemaker tricks like carbonic maceration.
