Château du Moulin-a-Vent is a jewel of the northern Beaujolais Cru of its namesake - Moulin-a-Vent. 

Run by the father-and-son duo, Jean-Jacques and Edouard Parinet, the Château specialises in serious wines from the region, exploring the ability to make wines that combine ethereal perfume with dense, intensity. Their focus is on terroir, releasing single vineyard wines which this event will explore in more detail. They produce wines in a style more akin to their Burgundian neighbours and with utmost sophistication. 

Tim Sykes, our buyer for Beaujolais, suggests that this producer is really hitting their stride at the moment, and we’re delighted to welcome them to share their wines with our members as they continue this upward trajectory. 

The pair will taste and discuss their hallamark Moulin-à-Vent from the 2018 and 2020 vintage followed by two special single vineyard wines ‘Les Verillats’ and ‘La Rochelle’, both from the 2020 vintage. Croix des Vérillats is named after the cross that stands on the property, it is their most savoury expression and incredibly age-worthy so great to lay down, and ‘La Rochelle’ is the plot with the oldest vines of over 80 years in age, producing an intense and truly remarkable expression. 

We’re offering members wine sample packs to purchase alongside the event. The packs feature the four wines described above and can be bought at the link here. 

Why not consider a Tasting ticket as the perfect present this Christmas with a great range of styles suitable for beginners in wine right through to experienced tasters? You can buy tickets to in person events as gifts as well as our 'wine sample packs' or bottles for certain online events.
