Most famous for Beaujolais Nouveau – a wine bottle only a few weeks after fermentation and drank on the 3rd Thursday of November – Beaujolais is an intriguing wine region technically part of the Rhone commune, but has always been considered part of Burgundy. Reds here are made from 100% Gamay. Gamay produces light, fresh and floral red wines, similar in style to Pinot Noir. Most Beaujolais is produced using semi-carbonic maceration in which the grapes are fermented in a carbon dioxide rich environment. This releases lots of colour and bright fruit characters without much tannic structure. Much of Beaujolais is granite with outcrops of schist in part of Morgon or Andesites in the Cote de Brouilly. In the Auvergne, gamay is planted on basalts and in the Côtes Roannaise there is again granite.

The estate is situated in Vauxrenard and was founded in 1987. Since then it has grown from 1.5 hectare to 8.5 hectares. The wines are vinified and bottled without the addition of sulphur or additives and are neither filtered or fined. Bruno, a 6th generation wine grower, was joined in 1989 by Isabelle. In 1999, Bruno became very ill due to the use of insecticides and began the move towards organic farming. The Moulin-a-Vent is now certified Demeter, and the winery is certified Vin Methode Natural - certified organic vines, hand-picked and produced using indigenous yeasts.

Tasting note: Sweet-spiced liquorice and blackcurrant, and both watermelon and honey-dew melon. It smells chalky, almost dusty. There is much sweeter creamy fruit on the palate. Soft, supple and smooth with sour red cherry, strawberry jelly, redcurrants and a touch of vanilla. Finishes on some green spice and great acidity.
Winemaking Detail: Certified biodynamic and Vin Methode Nature winemaking. Certified organic vines. Grass and cover crops between vines. 90 year old vines. Hand harvested and fermented on wild yeast. Semi-carbonic maceration for 12 days in stainless steel. Ageing in fine lees in stainless steel without the addition of any sulphur.
