Description

The boundaries of Moulin-à-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 Côte d'Or. Moulin-à-Vent can be cellared for several years. Appellation size : 663ha

Winemaking

Traditional vinification with controlled temperature.

Tasting note

A complex nose offering dark fruits such as blackberries and black currants, coffee and hints of chocolate. Lovely concentration in this wine of character that boasts round and well-integrated tannins.

Suggested food pairings

Veal roasts, filet de boeuf en croute, dishes with truffle or chanterelle mushroom sauce, wild game and cheeses.

Serving temperature

Between 12 & 16°C
