Features

This wine is a blend made from our eight great terroirs of Moulin-A-Vent : Rochegrès, Carquelin, Champ de Cour, Thorins les Vérillats, La Roche, la Rochelle and Les Caves. The pink granite soils are different from one vineyard to another and show various depths, alterations and exposures.

Vinification

Picked and sorted by hand, and often de-stemmed, the grapes macerate slowly over the course of three or four weeks. Both pigeage and pumping take place during the fermentation period depending on the vintage characteristics.

Winemaking and bottling

The wines are aged for 10 months in concrete tank and in oak barrels, in our historic cellar. The oak used to make the barrels comes from the forests of Allier, Limousin and Nivernais.

Tasting / Food pairing

Rich and powerful, these wines display the essence of their appellation with elegant fruit, supple tannins and freshness. This wine will be a good companion to all sorts of dishes: meat, fish, cheese, vegetables etc ...

Preservation

This Moulin-A-Vent needs two or three years to reach its harmony, and can then age easily for several decades. Vintages such as 2009, 2005, 1999, 1985 or even 1976 are delicious today.
