The boundaries of Moulin-a-Vent were marked out as early as 1924. The vineyard has shallow sandy soils derived from the underlying granite which is rich in manganese. This kind of terroir gives much substance and the resulting wines are often compared to their Burgundian cousins of the Cote d’Or. Moulin-a-Vent can be cellared for several years.
|This wine has an intense and complex nose that presents aromas of black fruits and undergrowth. It has a wonderful concentration as well as supple tannins.

|Since 1888 the Fessy family has been based in the heart of the Brouilly appellation. Over the years they have purchased choice parcels of vineyards in most of the 10 Crus and the Beaujolais-Villages appellations to create the enviable domain that we have today of nearly 70 hectares of prime vineyards. Work in our vineyards is carried out with sensitivity and intelligence and we only intervene when necessary or beneficial. This philosophy allows us to produce highly characterful wines which express a real sense of place and origin. We offer the full range of Beaujolais wines from our own vineyards each expressing their own unique terroir.Experience, tradition, respect and an in-depth knowledge of the Beaujolais vineyards go hand in hand making Henry Fessy a respected quality-driven domain.
