Rated 94 by Wine Advocate
The 2020 Moulin-à-Vent Vieilles Vignes has turned out brilliantly, bursting with aromas of cherries, cassis, sweet spices, rose petals and orange rind. Medium to full-bodied, rich and concentrated, it's gourmand but remarkably elegant, with powdery tannin, lively acids and a seamless, charming profile. As readers will remember, this ultra-traditional cuvée is mostly whole cluster and sees a classic two-week maceration with submerged cap before maturation in foudre.

Region: Burgundy

The beautiful region of Burgundy in France is famously home to some of the most exquisite red wines to be found anywhere on earth, and is most commonly associated with the silky, elegant and flavorful Pinot Noir varietal wines which are commonly produced there. However, the superb and mineral rich soils fed by the Rhone river, and the long hot summers and mild autumns of the region produce a wide variety of fine grapes, and as such, Burgundy produces plenty of different wines which are equally as good as the produce the region is famed for. The region of Burgundy itself has a wine-making history which stretches back at least two thousand years, and as such, it comes as no surprise that the wineries which fill the dozens of controlled appellations of the region rely heavily on traditional methods and techniques when it comes to producing their famous wines.
