Château du Moulin-a-Vent Les Verillats 2015 (RV)

Grapes Varietal:
Gamay

Tasting:
Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2015 Moulin A Vent Croix des Verillats comes from granitic soils known as gorrhe that are rich in manganese. The fruit is 75% de-stemmed and 65% is aged in oak for 12 months, 20% new wood. It has an elegant bouquet with red cherries, wild strawberry and crushed violet aromas. The palate is well balanced with supple tannin, crisp acidity and a lithe, almost citrus fresh finish. The new oak is deftly used here, lending a sheen to the wine without encroaching upon its mineralité or terroir expression. Superb.

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.
