Christophe Lapierre farms 10.7 hectares split between plots in Chénas and Moulin-à-Vent using very traditional winemaking practices. Christophe might not come across with the “flashiness” of some of his other young peers in the region, but he makes up for that in spades in what are some of the most charming and authentic Beaujolais wines that you’ll drink.
Each year I purchase as much wine as Christophe has to offer (which usually is very little), and if you see these available, drop what you are doing and pick them up.
Produced by traditional Beaujolais winemaking practices, the Moulin-à-Vent is dark purple in color with a warm, inviting nose of crushed blackcurrant. In the mouth the wine displays ample concentration and density of flavor; think black fruits and the spices.
