Cru Moulin-a-Vent 'Les Michelons' Domaine Yohan Lardy
This product is currently sold out.
Moulin-à-Vent is one of the ten individual areas in the Beaujolais that constitute the highest ranking wines of the area due to their complexity and greater potential for ageing. The appellation of Moulin-à-Vent straddles the communes of Romanèche-Thorins and Chénas, taking its name from the old windmill in the heart of the vineyards. Les Michelons, is a single vineyard chosen by Maison Louis Latour for its ideal southerly exposure and gently inclined slope. The wine has a remarkably deep richness of bouquet and intense savour requiring some ageing to reveal its full potential. It is the longest lived of all Cru Beaujolais. With a deep red colour and red-garnet highlights, Moulin-à-Vent offers a complex nose with blueberry, strawberry tree and spices notes. On the palate, it is ample with undergrowth, nutmeg and kirsch aromas. Very beautiful length. It's a lovely wine for grilled lamb chops or mature cheeses.
