From 75 year-old vines planted on blue granite, silt and clay at the foot of the hill (under the famous windmill of Moulin-a-Vent), this wine is fermented and aged in old oak, to retain freshness and purity of the terroir. It's also the least windy part of the area, which gives more tension and freshness to the wine.

17+ POINTS, JANCIS ROBINSON
Very dark crimson. Elegant, dark-red fruit. Attractively dusty sensation. Dry and a little more herbal. Tight and dry and zesty. Great finesse and upright, fine-boned structure. More austere than the Vieilles Vignes. Dry and a little bony on the palate. Rocky and dark, with a beautifully dry chalky texture. With time in the glass, it develops a fresh, slightly stemmy herbal character but not in the least underripe, almost minty. A complete baby.
