2014 Chateau Moulin a Vent Couvent Thorins
This wine is sourced from the terroirs of La Delatte, Les Rouchaux and Les Maisonneuvesin, which are the lower areas of the Moulin-à-Vent appellation. Because these terroirs are less exposed to the powerful winds that blow throughout the region, the grapes' maturation is not slowed down and the fruit is much better preserved. Down in the valley between the mountains and the Saône River, the soils are well hydrated, therefore the vines are not stressed. Maturation of the fruit continues without interruption through the summer, and thus the fruit is much better preserved at harvest.
