Georges Duboeuf 'Flower Label' Moulin-À-Vent 2016

Overview

The Moulin-À-Vent “Flower Label” is intense in color, varying between deep garnet and dark ruby. This Moulin-À-Vent is suggestive of both flowers and fruit, particularly violets and cherries. Well-structured with moderate tannins, delicately spiced, it offers complexity and good length, elegance and harmony, power and velvet.

Wine Facts

Winemaker Notes
During the 5-6 months growing season, temperature and rain levels were normal and made for excellent growing conditions. By September, the fruit analysis showed impressive sugar levels and healthy levels of natural acidity.

Interesting Facts
The ancient windmill perched on high, completely surrounded by Gamay vines, is nothing less than the royal throne of the Beaujolais cru, majestically withstanding time and tempests. Erected in the fifteenth century, the windmill ceased grinding grain in the midnineteenth century. Although in a state of repose, its machinery has remained in perfect operating condition, ever ready to resume duty. Recently the windmill’s sails were replaced, after their absence for many years. The only survivor of its kind in Beaujolais, it is very appropriately classified as a French historic monument.
