Winemaker's Notes

The goal of Dom. Vincent Girardin is to continue the tradition of great Moulin-a-Vent wines that, in the last century, were in the league of the great villages of the Côte de Nuits. With their structure and complexity linked to a important capacity for aging, wines from Moulin-a-Vent were always cited as excellent examples and with age, it's said that they "Pinotent", meaning getting closer to their Burgundian (Pinot) neighbors by evoking aromas of cherry, matured fruits, spices and truffle.

Critical Acclaim

"If you can get past the barnyard and cow patty scent, there's a lot of raspberry richness in the middle and end of this wine. It's tight and clean in the finish, full and generously spicy. There's dimension to the tannins, and enough structure to stand up to braised tripe. "
