Region Moulin-a-Vent

“Today, after a period of being the pariahs of the wine world, they are once again worthy objects of interest for serious wine lovers. This is all due to the magic combination of the Gamay grape and the particular characteristics of the best villages in the region, including the famous ‘crus’ Beaujolais.” Jancis Robinson MW

 The most full bodied and powerful wines in Beaujolais, the region can also create the longest-lasting examples. Because of their richness and structure the wine can support the use of oak which adds more tannin and structure to the wines. The term, “Vieillie en fût de chêne', generally indicated this practice… and price point.

Winery ARNAUD AUCOEUR

Arnaud Aucœur is the oldest family Domaine in the village of Morgon. Owner/Vignerons since 1825, the Vignoble Aucœur was established at Villié Morgon. Its Crus are planted to a dozen hectares of the most prestigious appellations of the region, including Morgon, Fleurie, and Moulin-à-Vent.    Production is done manually, with the traditions of the first generations of the Aucœur family being honoured. The passing down and inheritance of knowledge and experience is a fundamental value for the Aucœur family. To this end and the perpetuation of the family legacy, Arnaud Aucœur (2020 Beaujolais Winemaker of the Year, Guide Hachette) makes some of his wines, including the Moulin-à-Vent, in wooden containers. Barrels, tons and semi-casks are housed on the farm. Morgon, Fleurie, Moulin-à-Vent, Brouilly, Saint-Amour, Chiroubles, Régnié, Juliénas, Chénas, Beaujolais Villages, or Beaujolais–their
