A selection from parcels of vines in the La Rochelle section of Moulin à Vent, this wine comes from one of top recent vintages in Beaujolais. It is rich and packed with mature fruit. There are acidity, integrated tannins and secondary flavors of juicy acidity and smokiness. It is ready to drink. Owner Jean-Jacqus Parinet left the IT world for wine and bought Château Moulin-à-Vent in 2009 and Bief in 2012.
