Georges Duboeuf Moulin-Á-Vent de La Vigne Romaine 2013

Overview

This lovely wine from Georges Duboeuf displays a shiny garnet color. Aromas of black fruits, blackberry and cassis create a deliciously fruity nose that follows through to the fresh, fleshy, silky and balanced palate. This wine is the essence of Gamay.

Wine Facts

Winemaker Notes
The grapevines for this wine are planted on “Les Brenays,” “En Reclaine,” “Les Petits Bois,” “la Delatte” and “Les Petits Morier” terroirs. The vines cover 6.2 acres on a Southeast facing and are under 50 years old on average. The grapes are all handpicked and undergo 100% Malolactic fermentation with a percentage of the juice aged for 8 months in one-year-old French oak casks, and the rest in stainless steel.

Interesting Fact

The domain is situated in the commune of Romanèche-Thorins (Romanesca), which was the site of one of the first Roman farms in the region. The Domain has been run by the Gimaray family for generations.
