Features

The Champ de Cour parcel is located in the southernmost part of the area associated with the very best Moulin Vents. The vines are planted in one of the deepest soils in the region.

Vinification

Picked and sorted by hand, then de-stemmed, the grapes macerate slowly over the course of three or four weeks. Indigenous yeasts are used throughout the fermentation period, and extraction by means of both plunging and pumping over takes place on a regular basis.

Maturing and bottling

The wines are aged in our historic cellar for 10 months, a period spent in oak barrels, 100% of which are new. The oak used to make the barrels comes from the forests of Alliers, the Limousin and the Nivernais.

Tasting / Wine and food pairing

Champ de Cour' is a powerful, broad wine with supple tannins that help it to stand up to strongly flavoured dishes.

Conservation

The wine needs two to three years reach its peak, and can then age comfortably for several decades.

The Vintage

2009 was, without a doubt, the greatest vintage in living memory. Ideal weather throughout the year ensured a September harvest of perfectly ripe bunches. These were small and tight, but just the right shape to allow air to circulate, ensuring pristine health and exceptional ripening, all of which led to the creation of a perfectly balanced wine whose concentration and texture were remarkable. When it comes to ageing potential, there is little doubt that these wines will outlive us all.
