Les Vieux Moulins, Pirouette

£16.20

1

A wonderfully youthful, pure and natural Bordeaux wine made by organic winemaker Damien Lorteau.

This wine is a marriage of two distinct parcels of vines: Cabernet-Franc and Merlot from limestone slopes, close to the Gironde estuary and Cabernet-Sauvignon and Merlot, planted over gravelly soil near Reignac. Everything is destemmed, gently macerated and aged only in concrete for a pure expression of the fruit.

Les Vieux Moulins has been certified as organic since 2013 and uses low intervention winemaking, using native yeast and no sulphur during vinification, only a minimal amount at bottling.

A delightful accompaniment to roast lamb, game birds or a hearty beef stew.

Nose: A combination of dark ripe berries, black pepper and smoke.

Palate: Medium-bodied with high acidity and notes of freshly crushed berries.

ABV: 13.5%




For bottles with corks, be sure to store your wine horizontally in a wine rack. Keeping wine on its side helps keep the cork moist, which is key for long-term storage, as a dried out cork can cause seepage and premature aging. 

While it's not necessary to keep screw top wine bottles on their sides, horizontal storage is nevertheless an efficient way to store your wines for maximum space and easy access.

About

Damien Lorteau's 20 hectacre vineyard in Bordeaux is a marriage of two distinct parcels of vines, originally owned individually by his maternal and paternal grandfathers. His parents joined the plots into one estate in 1997 following the retirement of their fathers; before handing over the whole estate to Damien in 2013.

The estate has been using organic practices since 2010, ever since Damien returned home from working in vineyards worldwide and watned to breath new lift into the estate. He convinced his parents to convert to organic agriculture and low intervention practice, something that was and still is uncommon in Bordeaux. In 2013 they were cerified as organic.

Damian works by the lunar calendar in the vineyards; following it for pruning, planting cover crop and for harvest if the rain allows. In the winery he follow it for racking and bottling. Bottling in the descending moon keeps the micro-organism populations lower in the wine, which means it’s more stable and Damian can be confident to use only minimal sulphur at bottling.
