Grapes: 100% Gamay
Château des Jacques Moulin-à-Vent Clos de Rochegrès is a special cuvée from old vines that cover 24 acres. The soil of the Clos de Rochegrès is granitic, fairly shallow and overlies an extremely hard bedrock. After a portion of the grapes are destemmed, the wine is vinified in closed vats with pumping over. The wine is then matured in oak barrels for 10 to 11 months.
Wine Advocate2016 vintage
Clos de Rochegrès has fine rose and peony aromas and flavors with a touch of minerals. The wine is generous on the palate thanks to its elegant, long-lasting tannins.
This wine will perfectly match red meats in sauce, venison and other game and most cheeses.
