Henry Fessy - Cru De Beaujolais 'Moulin-a-Vent' 750ML
From the Producers
HENRY FESSY CRU DE BEAUJOLAIS MOULIN-A-VENT
The boundaries of Moulin-à-Vent were marked out as early as 1924. The vineyard has shallow sandy soils derived from the underlying granite which is rich in manganese. This kind of terroir gives much substance and the resulting wines are often compared to their Burgundian cousins of the Côte d'Or. Moulin-à-Vent can be cellared for several years. Appellation size : 663ha
Traditional vinification with controlled temperature.
Our Moulin-à-Vent 2015 has an intense red colour with bluish reflections. On the nose, aromas of strawberry and raspberry emerge. Beautiful attack in the mouth with red fruits and a pinch of violet. A very elegant wine.
Food Pairings: Roasted veal, fillet of beef, truffles, girolle mushroom, game, cheese.
