Moulin-à-Vent Tres Vieille Vigne Les Caves

Domaine Anita Moulin-à-Vent Tres Vieille Vigne Les Caves


  • Planted for almost a century on the prestigious granite slopes of the “Caves”, this plot is the pride of Domaine Anita.
  • Moulin-à-Vent Tres Vieille Vigne Les Caves  is hand harvested, carefully selected, and uses sustainable viticulture practices.

Varietal Composition: 100% Gamay

Elaboration: Located in the village of Chenas over Lieu dit les Caves with Granit and Manganese soils and a South/East exposure. Grown at high altitude (2205 meters). The Gamay vineyard is 45 years old and the planting density is 10,000 foot/ha.  The vines are Gobelet trained, with pruning up to 10 eyes. The vineyard is harvested and sorted manually. Vinification is 100% whole clusters. Semi-carbonic maceration takes 11 days, pressing in a low-pressure horizontal press for slow extraction. The wine is aged 6 months in concrete tanks and at least 4 months in bottle before it is released.

Tasting Notes: The purple color announces aromas of very ripe black fruits and intensely spicy notes. Its material envelops the palate. Its generosity and richness, combined with a rounded finish, sublimate it. Heady tannins will give this historic vintage a long aging potential.
