Moulin à Vent "Champ de Cour" 2020


The story
I like to compare this terroir like my Chambolle Musigny of Moulin à vent. Because the facing offers a nice maturity and the diversity of the granite a really nice complexity. It’s a wine need more aging in barrels to make the wine softer and approachable.
Planted over 80 years ago, this is a unique 1.5 ha parcel on the southern part of the appellation who is protected from the windmill and the prevailing northerly winds. This positioning allows more maturity and concentration to the grape clusters with its southern exposure.
This terroir has an exceptional power who is due to a subsoil of pink granitic sands, rich in manganese dioxide.
The harvesting is manual with 40% of whole clusters.
3 weeks of fermentation with a very light extraction.
Aged in barrels of 2 to 3 wines during 15 months.

Gamay : 100%


Tasting notes
The wine shows a very nice concentration with some black fruits flavors, irises, wilted roses, spices and ripe fruits. The texture is soft and rich with a long finish. It has an impressive structure, suggeting that it has the capacity to age for many years.
