Estate : Domaine Labruyere is one of the oldest wineries in the Moulin-a-Vent appellation.
In 1850, Jean-Marie Labruyere, wine grower, settled in les Thorins, a hamlet of Romanèche-Thorins. He acquired 25 acres of well-located vineyards.
Since then, several generations of Labruyere have been running the estate and have acquired the famous “Clos du Moulin-a-Vent”, unique Monopole of the appellation. Located right by the iconic windmill, this is one of the most precious jewels of Domaine Labruyere.
In 2008, Edouard Labruyere took over the responsability of the Estate convinced that all plots are located on the best terroirs of the region. He impulsed Domaine Labruyere with a new dynamism, and it is today considered as one of the spearheads of the Beaujolais region.
Unique Monopole of the Appellation, this 2.3 acres vineyard is perfectly located down the windmill, symbol of the Cru.
Based on a dry, hard, granitic soil, this unique terroir produces outstanding Gamay offering structured, mineral, long-lasting wines as iconic as the greatest French wines.
Tasting Notes :
Delicate bouquet and fine, singular mineral touch with a palate of nice fruits and a very elegant tension, great length !
