Stephane Aviron Moulin-a-Vent 2016
Made only in exceptional years, this is a very small production wine from vines aver-aging 65 years old, but with many over 100 years. Aged 12 months in new and used oak casks, this Moulin-a-Vent dazzles with a paradoxical firmness and fleshiness. The tannins are fine, not hard… you can taste the ancient granite soil of this cru. Uplifting brightness in the finish amplifies its appeal. It takes time to open up in the glass so either decant it before serving, or better yet, put it in the cellar for a few years with Stephane's wines from other crus as well.
