Le Clos du Moulin-à-Vent

Domaine Labruyere Le Clos du Moulin-à-Vent  Bouteille
  • 2009 is a rare year. We talk about a legendary vintage for Beaujolais thanks to a "tailored" weather with outstanding conditions.
    The harvest date was easy to choose and berries were perfectly mature and in excellent conditions: excellent health on every plot and a rare acidity/maturity ratio. These gave very fruity wines, well-structured. In terms of taste this is an exceptional vintage that could find its place between 2005 - rich and balanced - and 2003 - concentrated and very mature.
