Product Overview

Importer's Notes
"Anita produces this cuvée from a 65-year-old planting on a lower part of the slope (240 meters altitude) in Les Caves in soils of decomposing granite with streaks of manganese. If the "Reine de Nuit" offers a certain lifted elegance, "Tres Vieille Vigne" harnesses the power and sap these old vines are capable of. To that end, Anita ages 25% of the blend in used Burgundy barrels, extending the elevage to ten months-a regimen which underlines the Pinot Noir-like qualities of this site even more clearly than the "Reine de Nuit." A heady overlay of savory spice calls to mind great Morey-Saint-Denis, and its dark-cast fruit is dense but not overdone."

Varietal Composition: 100% Gamay
Appellation: Moulin a Vent AOC
Aging: 10 months in French oak

93 Points - Wine Enthusiast
"The concentration of this wine comes from the old vines, giving richness and generous black fruits as well as dense tannins that will soften. Drink this wine from 2025. " -RV, 5/1/23

93 Points - Vinous
"The 2021 Moulin-à-Vent Tres Vieille Vigne Les Caves comes from vines over 80-years old. It has an almost surly, backward bouquet that despite encouragement is not coming out to play, with hints of pressed iris flower reluctantly emerging. The palate is worth investigating: lovely balance, fine acidity, assiduous use of oak and a vibrant finish. Cellar this for 3-4 years to allow the aromatics to develop and you should have a wonderful Moulin-a-Vent." -NM, 3/2023
