The Moulin-à-Vent Red 2009 shows a rather atypical profile for the region. With attractive power, this wine rises above the region's archetypes. Although drinking well now, this exceptional wine can easily age for another 10 years. The panel's favourite, this Moulin-à-Vent is impressive. Class in its purest form!

Intense red colour with purplish highlights


Fruity, spicy aromas.


Powerful and smooth on the palate with delicious fruity, spicy notes perfectly confiming the wine's aromas on the nose. Beautiful length on the palate.


Serve between 15 and 17°C. Decant a few minutes before drinking when very young.

Food and wine pairing:

Beef Samossas, courgette fritters.

Enjoy up to and including 2020

Jean Charles Pivot is a notable figure in the Beaujolais, certainly one of its finest ambassadors. Notable too is the celebrity of his brother Bernard, a well known French TV personality from the cultural world. But here when we talk about 'exceptional' we are referring to the excellence of the 2009 vintage. Star of the decade, this vintage produces wines of a rare intensity.
