Moulin À Vent – Tradition
100% Gamay from 50 year-old vines grown on granite sub-soil. This cuvée is a blend of diverse parcels that are hand-harvested from 4 hectares. The grape bunches are not de-stemmed, are loaded whole into stainless steel vats and undergo carbonic maceration. The wine is raised in « foudre » casks of 4,000 liters for 10 months. 12,000 bottles and 100 magnums produced.
About the Producer
The 6 hectares of vineyards - 12 parcels in Moulin À Vent - were bought in 2012 by the Lardet family: Paul and Danielle Lardet, and their three children, Delphine (who made wine with Yves Cuilleron), Jocelyn and Stéphane. “Le Nid” or “The Nest”, as they have baptized their vineyard, is the symbol of their unity. Together and supported by their cellar master and oenologist, they have redefined the growing and wine-making process whilst still respecting tradition.
