Background
Covering 5.2 ha (12.85 acres) within the 660 ha (1631 acres) of the Moulin-à-Vent appellation, our vines are ideally located at the heart of one of the 18 recognized single vineyards, Rochegrès, where, as its name, "grey rock", suggests, the granitic parent rock is visible at the surface in the vineyards. These vines benefit from mainly south-eastern exposure and thrive in very pure, lean pink granitic soil. This forces them to plunge their roots deep down in search of the nutrients they need. Our Moulin-à-Vent Domaine de Rochegrès is crafted with grapes from different terroirs: La Rochelle, au Mont and from the youngest vines in Rochegrès.
Tasting Notes
Floral and full-flavoured, this beautiful wine exudes aromas of rose and dark wild berries with an expressive mineral base. The palate is generous, with structure that is both complex and harmonious. The finish is intense and subtly flavoured.
Peak Drinking / Cellaring Potential
Serve between 13 and 14°C. (55°F - 57°F) May be enjoyed now while young or laid down for 3 to 5 years or more.
Food Matches
Taste our Moulin-à-Vent with roasted meats, game and dishes in sauce.
