David Large | Beaujolais, France
Moulin-à-Vent is a Cru Beaujolais grown in a plot around 500 meters above sea level. It’s grown on a northwest-facing slope in a special pink (yes, pink!) granite. It’s pleasantly high-acid, with less tannin than you would expect from this particular Cru. For me, it smelled exactly like sour gummy worms. It’s one you’re guaranteed to want to keep drinking! It drinks more like one of the lighter crus than a traditional Moulin-à-Vent.
Pairing Suggestions: Simple roast chicken, grilled pork, or Chinese food!
Sulfites: Small amount added at bottling
