Moulin-à-Vent is the only one of the 10 Beaujolais crus not named for a village. Rather, it’s named for an imposing windmill — moulin-à-vent in French — that has come to signify the region. Moulin-à-Vents are among the most structured wines in Beaujolais, and you can certainly sense the tannins in this bottle from Christophe Pacalet, along with the aromas of red fruits and violets and a stony minerality.
