|Fernand and son Alain Coudert's Clos de la Roilette represents a single, nearly amphitheatric parcel, and is the source for some of the most profound and age-worthy wines being grown anywhere in Beaujolais today. The wine was long sold solely as "Clos de la Roilette" due to the original owner's pique at having been deprived of his property's standing as Moulin-a-Vent when the appellation Fleurie was officially demarcated. Intriguingly, Alain Coudert has trained some of his old head-pruned vines to wires in the belief that this ultimately labor-saving measure will have no negative impact on quality, 'though naturally he is monitoring this closely! In contrast with many of the top growers of Beaujolais, he lightly chaptalizes his wine every year, since – like many vignerons of the Cote d'Or – he deems that a useful way of prolonging fermentation. The wines are all matured for a time in large casks, but Coudert says he takes them back out as soon as he achieves just the balance and hint of maturation there that he desires.
