Château du Moulin-à-Vent has 37 hectares including top single vineyards ‘Champ du Cour’ and ‘La Rochelle’. The vines are densely planted at 9,000 vines per hectare and yields are low, between 20-35 hectolitres per hectare, versus the minimum requirements of 6,000 vines per hectare and yields of 56 hectolitres per hectare for wines of the Moulin-à-Vent appellation. Here Gamay is given the royal treatment and the resulting wines will develop and improve beautifully over time in the bottle. The wines are fermented in stainless steel tanks and then aged in French oak with sizes ranging from 228, 350 to 500 litres, depending on the wine. This Gamay is vivid ruby in colour. The wine has a very aromatic nose, with notes of blood orange, cherry and pepper. On the palate, this wine is well balanced with a medium body and hints of cherry and flint on the finish.
