Moulin a Vent 2014

Stephane Aviron

Made only in exceptional years, this wine is a very limited production.

Terroir: A similar terroir to that of Chenas, this is a very small production wine of four separate parcels with vines averaging 65 years old, but with many over 100 years.

Vinification: Grapes are vinified separately until time for the final blending and bottling. The must is macerated in temperature controlled stainless steel vats for 12-15 days and then aged for 12-14 months in a combination of new and used oak casks.

    Be grateful that Stphane Aviron is an old-vine hunter. Serious tannins and concentration from 100-year-old vines give this wine its depth and richness. It has a great potential to age with black fruits, a mineral texture and acidity. This is an impressive cru wine, full of both fruit and density. Drink from 2019.

    A firm and structured cru wine from 100-year-old vines that has layers of firm fruits and tannins. It is a wine that is likely to mature well, with its wood aging and dry core. A blend from four parcels, it is concentrated and with a rich black-cherry character. Drink this exceptional wine, from old-vine hunter Stphane Aviron, starting in 2020.

    This light- to medium-bodied red is focused, with tangy blackberry, smoke and dried herb flavors highlighted by firm, fresh acidity. Licorice and mineral notes linger on the mineral-driven finish. Drink now through 2018.
