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 2017

Colour

The dress of this 2017 is of beautiful steady red

Nose

The nose is elegant and in dominant black fruits (blackcurrants, blackberry) with some licorice notes

Body

The attck in mouth is frank and generous, black fruits and spices (pepper) dominates. Tannins are already very silky and the set presents good length. This Moulin-à-Vent is ready to drink but has also a great ageing potential from 10 to 20 years. We recommend to use a carafe

Climate

A sunny spring but a late frost at the end of April. Slightly watered summer and in spite of the thunderstorms of hail which reduced the quantities, the quality is there over this beautiful 2017.

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.

Moulin à vent 2015

Colour

The dress of this 2015 is a beautiful red deep ruby

Nose

The nose is spiced and also presents licorice notes

Body

The mouse is on black fruits, fruits with cores (cherry & pupil). This Moulin-à-Vent is structured with still firm tannins on finale but wich should become supple in time

Climate

We feared the worst at the beginnig of august beacause of an insane heat wave which damaged the foliages. 25mm of rain in the month saved the grapes with a maturity resumption making of this harvest an anthology vintage

Moulin à vent 2016

Colour

The dress of this 2016 is of beautiful deep garnet

Nose

The nose is dominated by very ripe fruits mixed in peppered notes, of leather and tobacco

Body

The mouth lets appear aromas of black fruits (blueberry, blackberry …) and of gingerbread. Tannins are firm but already very silky and give way in one pleasant and velvety finale. This Windmill has to wait for a few years to be for its peak. Serve in 14-16°C

Climate

The summer was there and with it, the ideal conditions of maturation. The vineyard benefited from a hot and dry weather during the weeks preceding the harvests. Fresher nights associated with beautiful sunny days allowed the grape harvest to reach an ideal maturity while keeping a pleasant freshness
