Grape variety : Gamay noir à jus blanc

Soil : manganese-rich granite

Aspect : South – Southeast

Average vine age : 70 years old

Keeping : from 5 to 10 years


Manual harvest

 

 

Selective sorting of the yield on a sorting table.

After partial de-stalking of the grapes (around 70% is de-stalked), we vat them for 15 days in order to extract the maximum of refined tannins.

After pneumatic pressing, the wine is matured in vats for 9 months.

A ruby, well-built wine with silky tannins from which iris, fully-blown rose, spice and ripe fruit aromas develop. It owed its qualities to the manganese-rich granitic soil the vines grow in.

An elegant partner to :

- Strip steak

- Game

- Matured cheeses

The Lord of Beaujolais wines, this Moulin à Vent should be served at 14°C (57°F)
