Located 10km south of Mâcon, in the southernmost tip of the Burgundy region, it owes its name to the old windmill that stands on the top of the hill of "les Thorins". Before 1936 and the creation of the AOC Moulin-a-Vent, the estate was called Château des Thorins.  The estate now stretches over 37 Ha of vines belonging to the greatest terroirs of the appellation, like Le Champ de Cour, La Rochelle and Les Vérillats.
 
Light and slightly earthy on the nose with underlying red berry notes.  The palate is medium-bodied and sets out fresh fruits right from the start.  Lovely mix of fresh cherry and dark fruit gives way to fruitcake notes with a touch of spice ending with a very subtle meatiness.
 
Food pairing:  Charcuterie meats
