Why we love this
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.
This is now a 2020 vintage.
Nose: A combination of dark ripe berries, black pepper and smoke.
Palate: Medium-bodied with high acidity and notes of freshly crushed berries.
