Moulin a Vent’s 25 hectares of estate vines occupy the highest hill in Moulis. The soil is mostly volcanic gravel with calcareous clay, making it perfect for Merlot, which makes up about 65% of the blend. The rest is 30% Cabernet Sauvignon with a little bit of Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. The 2009 offers supple cherry and cassis fruit with an elegant bouquet and a touch of earth. This could easily age another ten years.
