Domaine Colette's Moulin à Vent stands out among the Beaujolais Crus due to its unique soil composition. The soil is thin and rests upon a manganese-rich granite bedrock, resulting in a distinct terroir. The winery's 70+ year old vine parcel, located on the prestigious Le Mont slope, produces exceptional fruit. The vinification process is unique as well, with a majority of the fruit being destemmed and a longer maceration period, resulting in a fine tannin profile. This wine is rich yet lively, showcasing a dark fruit core with mineral undertones.

It is a perfect accompaniment for any beef dish, whether it be a grilled ribeye or a traditional pot-au-feu.

It's hard to pick our favourite Beaujolais producer but the proof is in the results that Domaine Colette is a customer favourite.

Jacky Gauthier's family has been making wine in the Regnie Cru of Beajolais for generations. Today he and his wife Evelyne and his uncle work the family vineyards.

The soils at Colette are worked organically in an effort to promote healthy and vigorous root systems. Only vegetable-based fertilizers are used. They shallow-plow between the vines during plant dormancy to force the roots down into the subsoil (and thus hopefully take on more of the terroir characteristics of each cru). They limit vine treatments during the year and intervene only when completely necessary. A green harvest is performed to give more concentrated grapes. Harvest is by hand, and only healthy grape clusters are emptied into the tank.

Moulin-à-Vent is nicknamed “The Lord of Beaujolais wines” because of its noble bouquet.
