Moulin-à-Vent 2016

Stéphane Aviron


Made only in exceptional years, this wine is a very limited production.

Terroir: A similar terroir to that of Chenas, this is a very small production wine of four separate parcels with vines averaging 65 years old, but with many over 100 years.

Vinification: Grapes are vinified separately until time for the final blending and bottling. The must is macerated in temperature controlled stainless steel vats for 12-15 days and then aged for 12-14 months in a combination of new and used oak casks.

Additional Information

Serious nose of concentrated black fruits. Impressive and inviting. Seductive black fruits woven with violets. Gorgeous velvety texture.

    Avirons Moulin--Vent dazzles with a paradoxical firmness and fleshiness. The tannins are fine, not hard or astringent. You can almost taste the granitic soil of this cru in this tightly wound wine. Uplifting brightness in the finish amplifies its appeal. It takes time in the glass to blossom so either decant it before serving, or better yet, put it in the cellar for a few years and his wines from the other crus.
