A super property beautifully situated just below Le Château du Moulin-à-Vent with very fine terroir. Thierry Janin is a true “vigneron”! He owns 1 hectare and rents and works a further 6 hectares on a metayage basis – receiving a proportion of the production. Thierry adheres to organic principles in the vineyards. In most years the grapes are whole bunch fermented. Minimal doses of SO2 are usually added during fermentation and just before bottling. The wine is very lightly filtered. The Moulin-à-Vent comes from 45 – 55 year old vines and is aged in old foudres.
For a duck rillettes which is a duck leg confit shredded before being mixed with spices and Armagnac with slight less fat that then pork rillet, a more concentrated red would be ideal. Looking for a quality ‘cru’ Beaujolais with ripe cherry flavours and a mellow, well integrated structure this Moulin A Vent is perfect. It will also work well with a gamier pâté.
