Château du Moulin-a-Vent Champ de Cour 2013 (RV)

Grapes Varietal:
Gamay

Tasting:
"Markedly floral aromas combine notes of discreet pepper and earth with those of dark berries and plum. The mouth feel here is finer still with an appealing energy to the saline and punchy flavors that culminate in a lingering finish where there is a hint of acid tang that isn't aggressive but it detracts ever-so-slightly from the overall sense of harmony." - Allen Meadows

"It has a focused, pure bouquet with red currant and wild strawberry scents, a touch of undergrowth developing with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied, with supple tannin and well-judged acidity. There is a tingle of pepper at the tip of the tongue with an easy-drinking, mellow finish." - Neal Martin

Additional Information

  • Description
  • The Moulin-à-Vent appellation is located at the southernmost tip of Burgundy, 12 kilometers South of the city of Mâcon. It stands on the 5th meridian, hosting some of the greatest terroirs in France, including (from North to South) the vineyards of Champagne, Burgundy, Beaujolais and Rhône. In the middle of this 600 km segment, a block of 630 hectares of vineyard (1,550 acres) surrounds the windmill and its adjoining château. The Gamay-planted plots flourish over a mosaic of terroirs located between 160 and 400 meters above sea level, between the village of Romanèche-Thorins and the banks of the Saône to the east, and the mounts of Beaujolais to the west. Its complex soils are the result of the collision between the Jurassic limestones of Burgundy and granite from the center of France. Moulin-à-Vent gathers soils of real diversity over a limited area. The appellation also benefits from unique environment and soils in Beaujolais.
