Moulin à Vent Les Thorins Vieilles Vignes
100% Gamay. Plot ‘‘Les Thorins’. Seventy years old vines planted on a South East terroir of granite and sand soils with veins of manganese (iron mineral). Elevation: 260m. Twelve day maceration with whole clusters in gridded vats. Native yeasts. Aged eight months in concrete vats and 15% neutral French oak barrel.
Deep violet. Powerful, mineral-accented cherry and blackberry aromas, complicated by a suave floral nuance. Juicy, impressively concentrated dark berry, cherry and spicecake flavors smoothly combine power and delicacy. Vibrant and appealingly sweet on the youthfully tannic finish, which shows outstanding clarity and mineral-driven persistence..
