Moulin-à-Vent 2018

Looking at the 2018 vintage in Beaujolais there is plenty to celebrate with many of the region’s crus producing outstanding wines after a hot, dry growing season.

Morgon and Moulin-à-Vent confirmed their claim as the leading crus in terms of terroir character and age-worthiness.

Many of the wines from Moulin-à-Vent demonstrated a much ‘glossier’ and supple character with less of the grippy, tannic and rustic edges seen in earlier years.
