MOULIN A VENT «cuvée Tentation »

Moulin à vent - cuvée tentation


Appellation :
AOC MOULIN A VENT

Colour : Red

Grape variety : 100 % Gamay noir à jus blanc (Black Gamay with white juice)

Origin : vines with an average age of 45 years, soil composed of arenas of friable rose granite streaked with veins of manganese.

Planting density : 10,000 stocks / hectare

Vinification : handpicking, destemmed grapes, vatting for up to 15 days with a Burgundy-style cold pre-fermentation maceration for 7 days, punching of the cap and delestage to bring out the terroir.

Maturing : in barrels or oak casks for several months. This is how the wine obtains roundness, suppleness and develops its bouquet.
