Le Clos du Moulin-à-Vent

Domaine Labruyere Le Clos du Moulin-à-Vent  Bouteille
  • Spring came at the end of March with summer temperatures, hot and dry weather causing an explosive and brief flowering. Weather changed dramatically from July 14th and looked like fall. Harvests debuted on August 31st and took place in ideal conditions of maturity. 2011 is a nice balance between the freshness of 2010 and heat of 2009.
