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 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 2018

Colour

The color of this 2018 is a beautiful ruby red.

Nose

The elegant nose presents a mixture of red and black fruits: cherry, blackcurrant, blackberry.

Body

The palate is fleshy, full of fruit, fresh and harmonious. The body is supple with silky tannins. This Moulin à Vent is ready to drink but also has great aging potential: 10-20 years. We recommend decanting before tasting.

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 2019

Colour

The color of this 2019 is a beautiful deep ruby ​​red.

Nose

The nose presents fine notes of red fruits accompanied by a touch of vanilla.

Body

The palate is full-bodied, dominated by stone fruits (cherry…) and spicy notes (nutmeg). A structured wine with already very silky tannins. The whole presents a beautiful harmony but must wait a few years to be at its peak

Climate

We feared the worst at the beginnig of august beacause of an insane heat wave which damaged the foliages. The rain saved the grapes with a maturity resumption making of this harvest an anthology vintage in the heels of 2015!

Rochegrés

Rochegrés

Moulin à vent 2019

Colour

The color of this 2019 is a beautiful deep ruby ​​red.

Nose

The nose is complex, at the same time “Toasted” and “fruity” (blackberries, blackcurrant…).

Body

The mouth is full-bodied and generous with tannins already very silky. The roasted notes blend perfectly with ripe fruit. A powerful and balanced cuvée that will further refine over time

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
