The wines from the Beaujolais Cru, Moulin-a-Vent, are noted for being the most age-worthy of the region, given their intense fruitiness and tannic structure. It is unsurprising that legendary Burgundian Domaine, A.F. Gros acquired a 3.8 hectare vineyard in Mortperay back in 2017. The vines are hand harvested and then three separate cuvées are made in the winery, before the finished wines are blended and bottled. One portion is stainless steel, a second placed in 5,000 litre oak foudre and the last is aged in traditional 228 litre barriques. Each impart different characters and complexities to the finished wine.
