Harvesting of Moulin-Á-Vent Domaine des Pourpre is done manually, by hand in whole bunches and the grapes are de-stemmed. The 50+ year old vines face the Southeast direction and undergo the Gobelet Trellis system. The wine is aged in stainless steel.
This wine is excellent paired with roasted red meats, “au jus”, roasted chicken, and aged cheeses.
Domaine du Pourpre is a family-run estate in the commune of Chénas. The MEZIAT family has been running it for 5 generations. The current head of the operation, Bernard MEZIAT, took over in 1978, so it's fair to say that he's a very experienced winegrower!
