Bursting with fresh fruits and loads of varietal character. Très bon vin!
A supple, sexy and Burgundian red from the Moulin-a-Vent subregion.
Paul Janin's winery can be found in Moulin-à- Vent, which is one of the ten subzones of Cru Beaujolais. Beaujolais is undoubtedly one of the most misunderstood of France’s great wine regions. Well-known in and around France for centuries, its once-august reputation has been tarnished by the commercial ascendency of Beaujolais Nouveau, the just-barely-wine that hits store shelves mid-November of each year. But, using the indigenous Gamay grape, producers craft wines of purity and freshness, characterized by their degrees of easy-drinking charm and ethereal beauty.
