Moulin-à-Vent 'Les Michelons' 2011 has an intense deep garnet colour. It is abundant on the nose with aromas of blackberries, strawberries and undergrowth. On the palate it is powerful with notes of strawberries and lovely soft tannins.
Moulin-à-Vent is one of the 10 individual growths in the Beaujolais that constitute the highest ranking wines of the area due to their complexity and greater potential for ageing. The appellation of Moulin-à-Vent straddles the communes of Romanèche-Thorins and Chénas, taking its name from the old windmill in the heart of the vineyards.
« Les Michelons » is a single vineyard chosen by Maison Louis Latour for its ideal southerly exposure and gently inclined slope. The wine has a remarkably deep richness of bouquet and intense savour requiring some ageing to reveal its full potential. It is the longest lived of all Cru Beaujolais.
