Our wines

“Passion motivates and fulfils us. Passion that grows day-in, day-out on our charming vineyard that we discovered in 2012. It is here, at the heart of the “Nid” that we hear our wine grow. We look after it. It speaks to us and tells us the story of Beaujolais, the earth at our roots. We ensure we give it our best, by taste and by respect.
The greatest French and International wine experts are not mistaken… We have received a Gold Medal at Macon’s Great French Wine Challenge, a Gold Medal at the International Wine Challenge in Lyon, a Silver Medal at the Gamay International Wine Challenge and 3 distinctions at the prestigious International Decanter Awards in London.”

The Lardet Family

- Parcel Selection

This cuvée respects, as do all wines from la Maison Le Nid, the traditional methods of Beaujolais grape harvesting and wine-making. Coming from a blend of vineyard plots with destemming, we take care to preserve the fundamentals of this wine, which is aged in oak casks over ten months.

Moulin à vent 2013

Colour

The wine colour is ruby-red in colour

Nose

 The nose is elegant, showcasing a mix of red and black fruits: cherry, blackcurrant, blackberry

Body

The body is supple, with silky tannins and notes of black fruits and cherry brandy. This Moulin-à-Vent is ready to drink but has also a great ageing potential from 10 to 20 years

Climate

Beaujolais is a region that has had to deal with varying weather conditions. The cool and humid spring led to a beautiful summer. The heat and sunshine have given structure to our wine. The fine rain in September brought size to our grape and provided us with a perfectly-sized harvest for our Appellation.

Particular care is taken with the grapes grown on our “La Rochelle” and “Rochegrés” vineyard plots which are located on the top of the Appellation hill.
Their secret? Rich soil, composed of sandstone, pink-granite fragments and crumbly pieces of a precious trace-element: manganese. The grapes are looked after separately all the way from growing to harvesting according to the plot selection criteria. They are then aged for twelve months in oak barrels in order to add woody notes to their structure.
These wines possess flavours that allow them to be compared to and to rival their Burgundy cousins.

La Rochelle

Colour

Its dress is a beautiful garnet

Nose

The nose is slightly vanilla with black fruits notes: blackcurrant and blackberry

Body

The body is at the same time supple and structured in a powerful minerality  with aromas of wild strawberry. It is a wine of big guarding, that can age 10 – 20 years.

Climate

A difficult year where the weather conditions made it difficult to work on the vine. Winter was particularly cold which meant our harvest was cut in half. However, a number of sunny days allowed us to perfect the maturity of our grape to an excellent level of quality.
