Located in the southernmost tip of the Burgundy region, Moulin a Vent was one of the first appellations awarded AOC status in 1936. Chateau du Moulin a Vent, named for the 300 year old stone windmill atop the hill of Les Thorins, dates back to 1732, when it was called Chateau des Thorins. Today, the estate encompasses 37 hectares (91.4 acres) of the appellations finest climats Les Verillats, Le Champ de Cour, La Rochelle planted to Gamay Noir averaging 40 years in age. The underlying granite soil is rich in iron oxide, copper and manganese, which may account for the wines aging potential. Since 2009, under the new ownership of the Parinet family, investment in the winemaking facilities and the vineyards has resulted in plot specific signature wines expressing the individual characteristics of each exceptional terroir.

Winemaker's Notes: This wine is sourced from the terroirs of La Delatte, Les Rouchaux and Les Maisonneuvesin, which are the lower areas of the Moulin a Vent appellation. These are terroirs which produce bigger berries with more freshness. Down in the valley between the mountains and the Saone River, the soils are well hydrated, therefore the vines are not stressed. Maturation of the fruit continues without interruption through the summer, and thus the fruit is much better preserved at harvest.
