Moulin-a-Vent Clos du Moulin-a-Vent Monopole Domaine Labruyere 2016

Domaine Labruyère is Moulin-à-Vent’s oldest estate, founded in 1850. It consists of 14 hectares of vines, all in the Moulin-à-Vent appellation and produces stunning, age-worthy wines which not only represent a pinnacle of what is happening in the region, but also offer some of the best value in the world of fine wine. The 2016 vintage in Moulin-à-Vent saw a rather spectacular confluence of weather. Nerve-wracking, to be sure, but the end results are exceptional. Le Clos is the only monopole (vineyard in sole ownership) in Moulin-à-Vent. Look at any image of the iconic windmill and you will most likely also be looking at this plot. This is the pinnacle of the Domaine’s wines: the most ageworthy, the most concentrated, made from the oldest vines and offers more than a nod to Syrah -spicy and substantial, with strident tannins. This is the only wine to be aged entirely in barrels

" A pure, immediate nose of raspberry and blackberry - could easily be high-class Pinot Noir. The palate is violet infused and linear, with fine tannins and a lovely acidity, more poised than juicy, buoying the pretty red berry flavours and refreshing the firm tannins. The tannins are the most muscular of the line-up but are beautifully perfume-coated and benefit from the counterpoint of dexterously fleshy raspberry fruit. This needs some cellar time – show it to anyone who claims that Gamay will not age! Le Clos 2016 was 100% destemmed. "
