Moulin-à-Vent Les Vérillats 2020

This cru owes its name to its old mill dominating the valley, its existence testifies to the regular and powerful winds which favour a good sanitary state of the plants. The "Les Vérillats" plot belongs to the greatest terroirs of the appellation. It produces grapes characterised by small berries giving concentrated and complex wines. The nose, which is delicate and fine, with aromas of small black fruits, is an invitation to taste. The wine is round, balanced, greedy with its fruity flavours in the mouth, this wine has great ageing potential and will challenge the passage of time.
