Moulin-a-Vent – wine – Brief Article

Philip E. Hiaring

Moulin-a-Vent is betrayed, if that’s the word, by a windmill on a hill. It signifies the biggest of the Beaujolais cru and, generally, the closest to red Burgundy. The 1997 from Les Vms Louis Tete is imported by Dominion Wines of San Francisco. It’s got good (Gamay) fruit which bears no resemblance to Beaujolais Nouveau in all its fruity splendor. It’s got medium body, and would have helped you wash down that Thanks-giving or Christmas turkey just fine. It also would be nice with veal or roast pork. For the anti-veal folk, a cornish rock hen, or just a plain old chicken, should do just fine. 11/99.
