  • Moulin à Vent

    Surface: 637 hectares

    Production in 2018: 31 485 hectolitres / approx. 4 000 000 bottles

    Soils: This Cru is implanted largely on soils of pink granite with hills of gentler contours due to its medium altitude. The vines thrive on these moderate slopes of evolved granite.

    Attributes: A wine of personality and prestige

    Aspect: Deep ruby red with dark garnet gleams

    Nose: Blackcurrant, liquorice, faded rose and ripe fruits

    Palate: Full bodied and complex

    Characteristics: Standing at 278 metres surrounded by vineyards, the windmill (Moulin), a classified historic monument, embodies the prestige and the pride
    of this appellation. Straddling two communes, it benefits from a homogenous terroir. With good tannins and lots of body, this is uncontestably a wine for laying down (up to 10 years depending on the vintage), developing aromas of iris, faded roses, spices and ripe fruits with notes of underwood and truffles. In its youth it offers floral and fruity aromas of violet and cherry.

  • Saint-Amour

    Surface: 318 hectares

    Production in 2018: 17 402 hectolitres / approx. 2 million bottles

    Soils: The soils are of an enormous diversity, including not only ancient alluvial clay and flinty clay but also granite, slate and even limestone rock. The altitude is between 240 and 320 metres with moderate inclines.

    Palate: Lively with good balance; fruity and floral

    Characteristics: AOC Saint-Amour is situated in the commune of the same name in the department of Saone-et-Loire. Its heterogeneous soils of granite, slate and
    clay give rise to two types of wine – light and gourmand with aromas of iris and violet, and often raspberry, but also powerful and complex with aromas of kirsch and spice.
