  • Alpine Wines Grape Varieties: Gamay

A deep granite red with a nose of vanilla, spice and dark berry fruits. On the palate, intense dark berry fruit with well judged oak, powerful gamey flavours, fine tannins. Very long.

Ben says (June 2017): Lovely smooth Moulin. Make sure you decant for at least 30 minutes before drinking. This is a delicious wine that needs time to open up.

Ben says (September 2018): Still utterly gorgeous even straight from the bottle.
