Description

The Domaine de la Pierre has 10 hectares on the appellation Moulin-à-Vent. His plots are mainly located on the "granite vein" of Romanèche-Thorins. Our climats are "La Teppe", "Les Métérées", "La Bruyère", "En Brennacy" and "Petit Brennay". Those vineyards have sandy clay soils oriented East and Southeast. Two of the plots are located on the climat "En Morier" facing South and near "Grimarets", exposed slightly Southeast. Both are characterized by heavier clay soils, located on ancient foothills with alluvial deposits.

Tasting note

Our Moulin-à-Vent Domaine de la Pierre shows a nice and deep red colour with brown lights. On ne nose, you find strawberry, raspberry and blackberry notes with leather and coffee flavours on the finish. On the palate, it is well-balanced and it offers pleasant tannins. The matter is present but without any astringency. The red berries and the black cherry dominate. Very nice persistancy.

Suggested food pairings

Roasted veal, fillet of beef, truffles, girolle mushroom, game, cheese.
