History

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. Votive statuettes of the period have been found and are now on display in the Ursulines Museum in Mâcon. The domain’s vineyards are probably the oldest in the region. The nearby River Saône made transport by boat to Lyon easy. The domain’s name is an obvious reminder of this long history.

The vines are planted on the “Les Brenays”, “en Reclaine”, “Les Petits Bois”, “la Delatte” and “Les Petits Morier” terroirs. The domain has been run by the Gimaray family for generations. The vines are 40 years old on average, and face south-south-east. The grapes are all hand-picked.

Tasting

A brilliant sustained bilberry colour. Intense aromas, dominated by jammy dark berries and delicate notes of oak, vanilla and toasting. Hearty, full and fleshy, this Moulin à Vent reveals a good tannin structure with fine, distinctive tannins that suggest a good ageing potential. Good persistence on the finish. Laying-down potential: 6 to 7 years.
