Tasting Notes

Tasting Notes

A big framed Moulin with substantial depth of colour.

On the nose are vanilla, oak and violets, with newly cut hay and spice aromas.

On the palate, it is smooth yet dense with great depth of flavour, lots of fruit, an almost meaty texture and a gamey earthiness.

Huge length with spice and violets.

Very stable ageing so you won't get tertiary notes, only a rebalancing of the floral and meaty notes. A slightly different wine each time.

The grapes are picked by hand at optimum ripeness levels and destalked prior to the individual berries being put in a tank. The temperature is lowered to 10°C, then slowly allowed to rise over the next 4-5 days and fermentation starts spontaneously using yeasts occurring naturally on the grape skins.

To give the wine structure, the ancient method of pigeage, or "punching down", is applied twice daily to maximise tannin extraction. There follows a long and slow fermentation over three weeks and then the wine is aged in oak barrels for about 18 months. During ageing the wine is racked once.
