Moulin-à-Vent

Domaine Labruyère 2013

S$1800 Flacon of 10cl

The wines of Moulin-à-Vent are the most structured of the Beaujolais wines and are often compared to Burgundies. This 2013 vintage confirms this nicely with its good initial intensity on the palate and developed character. The tannins are supple on entry in mouth, becoming firmer as the wine envelopes the palate. Herbaceous notes, structure and good length make for a beautiful finish.

Winemakers

Labruyère Family

Domaine Labruyère was founded nearly two centuries ago in Moulin-à-Vent and was one of the earliest estates to have the appellation. Over the years, the Labruyère family has adopted technical practices that were new to the appellation, including sustainable viticulture, soil tillage and the separate vinification of parcels – all in the aim of producing wines with long ageing potential. For some ten years now, Edouard and Jean-Pierre Labruyère have been focused on producing wines grown on the appellation’s best vineyard parcels. Nowadays, the Moulin à Vent estate is part of the family-owned Labruyère Group – including Château Rouget in Pomerol and Domaine Jacques Prieur in Meursault – and, thanks to a new-found success, it has become one of the leaders of its appellation.
