This wine is dark ruby in colour. It has lively cherry notes on the nose, a touch of liquorice and hints of black pepper. On the palate, it is full-bodied and the ripe tannins gently support the cherry, cassis and herb character on the finish.
A vivid ruby red in colour, the Moulin-�-Vent has a very aromatic nose, with notes of crushed strawberry and menthol. On the palate, it is round and balanced with a good structure and hints of cherries and wet stones.

A number of other lots will go into the final assemblage (Chavaroche, Fongeant, Lezardes and several more, probably including La Landonne). There's more cracked pepper and vio…
The nose reveals a spicy plum and blackberries, followed by notes of vanilla and black pepper. The palate conveys the perfectly ripe fruit, great concentration and a backbone of round tannins. Supple and ripe this Merlot a classy taste of the South of France.

The main production is of red wine; the appellation is classified as within the Loire, though geographically is quite separate from it. Gamay/Pinot Noir is a traditional blend, giving distinctive light, mineral wines which can be enjoyed at classic room temperature, but are even more p…
