Grape Variety : Gamay
Soil : Granite
Site : One of the most famous crus of the Beaujolais. The area of production is located in the southern part of the villages of Chenas in the Saône & Loire Department and in Romanèche Thorins in the Rhône Department. The vineyards are on the sides of a hill overlooked by a windmill, hence the name of the wine.
The Vintage 2009 : After a cold winter and a beautiful spring, the hot summer was interrupted by stormy intervals which fortuitously took place when needed and thus facilitated growth and good maturation of the grapes. Harvest began early September with excellent weather conditions.
Tasting : Bright red colour with purple nuances. Intense aromas of raspberry and violet mixed with spices. Well-structured and well-crafted. Very pure fruit aromas . Well shaped tannins. Long and generous aftertaste.
Food pairing : Cooked pork meat "charcuterie", barbecue and all sorts of mild cheeses.
