Classic Moulin, earthy and blackberry
Classic Moulin, plenty of crunchy brambly fruit, excellent structure with a hint of spice. The cuvée tradition I would summarise as "earthy and blackberry".

The Wine

Details

Classic Moulin, with violets and rich dark fruit on the nose. On the palate, plenty of crunchy brambly fruit, excellent structure and a hint of spice. Good with game and red meats.

This wine is made from grapes from a number of sites, with vines aged on average 45 years. The terroir is composed mainly of pink granite called "Ghorra". Exposition is generally South-Southeast at an average altitude of around 250 metres. Yields are restricted to 50hl/hA. Vinification is conventional with a maceration of 10 to 12 days with 6 months in large oak foudres after fermentation is complete.
The overall treatment gives a wine which may be aged for a minimum 4 to 5 years and often up to 10 years.

2009: Bottling was at the start of June 2010.

2010 this is a classic Beaujolais Cru. It epitomises exactly what you want from Moulin a Vent. If ever a wine showed that we should not be too influenced by 'great' vintages, this is it.

Flo says of the 2010 (July 2018): This beautiful gamay still has great structure and spice, it holds up to the test of time and is a great bbq wine. 

Ben says of the 2010 (September 2018): Lovely wine. Perfet Moulin and typically high quality from Bessone.
