The 2019 Moulin-à-Vent Les Vignes du Trembley comes from 40- to 90-year-old vines and is aged in vat for 16 months. Dark berry fruit mixed with cedar and tobacco adorn a nose that is missing a bit of finesse. The palate is balanced with quite saturated tannins, fine acidity, a smooth texture and attractive red cherry and orange zest flavors, plus a touch of allspice on the finish. This wine marks the origin of the estate. My grandfather bought his first plots in 1937, located on the place called Le Tremblay. Today, this cru is a blend of several localities: Les Greneriers, Les Burdelines, Les Pérelles, Champs de Cour, Les Brussellions and Aux Caves. Soils of weathered granite, piedmonts and ancient alluvium. The vines are mostly 40-70 years old, grown traditionally in a low goblet (bushvine). Harvested on the 23rd of August, entirely handpicked, transported in small 35-kg crates. All of the grapes were graded in the cellar on sorting tables. Pressing was undertaken following a 12 to 15 days of winemaking period of full grapes at 70%. Ageing stage was carried out in vats over a period of 18 months on fine lees. ABV 14%
