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. Geological origin and soil composition are quite different from the Côte d'Or. This is why the Beaujolais
red wines are only made of Gamay grapes. The soil from the Clos de Rochegrès
is typically granitic, not very deep and overlying a very hard bedrock. Louis Jadot Moulin à Vent "Clos de Rochegrès" is a special "cuvée" from old vines. It covers 8 hectares. The wine is vinified in closed vats with pumping over, and then aged in oak barrels for 12 months. One part of the grapes are de-stemmed.
Louis Jadot Moulin à Vent "Clos de Rochegrès" has a very nice garnet-red colour with crimson tints. It releases very fine aromas of flowers (rose) with a touch of mineral. The wine is generous and tender on the palate thanks to the elegant and long lasting tannins.
