Moulin-à-Vent

Description

The boundaries of Moulin-à-Vent were marked out as early as 1924. The vineyard has shallow sandy soils derived from the underlying granite which is rich in manganese. This kind of terroir gives much substance and the resulting wines are often compared to their Burgundian cousins of the Côte d'Or. Moulin-à-Vent can be cellared for several years. Appellation size : 663ha
