Domaine Labruyère - Moulin-à-Vent Coeur de Terroirs 2016


Terroir: Domaine Labruyère owns approximately 35 acres of prime vineyards spread across Moulin-à-Vent. This selection is sourced from the vineyards of Champ de Cour and Clos du Carquelin where vines are very densely planted in soils of granite and quartz. Vines here average 50 years old.

Vinification: Grapes are hand picked parcel by parcel as they reach phenolic ripeness and transported to the winery in small 25kg crates to avoid damage. Upon arrival the grapes are sorted twice prior to de-stemming. Vinification begins with a 20 day maceration at cool temperatures in stainless steel and concrete vats prior to aging in the cellars in older oak casks. No new oak is used for this cuvee.

Additional Details edit

Deep ruby red in color with purple reflections. Distinctive black berry notes with a hint of licorice. On the palate the wine is fruity, with sweet violet candy and notes of spice. Savory, long finish with fresh and soft tannins.

"Deep violet. Vibrant red berry, cherry preserve and floral pastille scents, along with suggestions of licorice and allspice. In an energetic, well-balanced style, offering juicy raspberry and bitter cherry flavors that show excellent back-end lift and building spiciness. The floral note repeats strongly on the very long, mineral-tinged finish, which is shaped by pliant tannins that fold smoothly into the wine's sappy red fruit."
