Moulin a Vent Les Thorin

This is the finest climat or named area in the Moulin-à-Vent appellation area. It is south-facing on a gentle slope, with topsoil depth at 20 to 30 cm over lovely granite, giving perfect drainage, just above the windmill that gives its name to the cru. Partially matured in oak tuns and partially in concrete vats. This red wine is made from 100% Gamay from Beaujolais (France) and is quick to show its noble nature. Its bouquet asks nothing more than to give its all after long cellaring. Moulin-à-Vent Les Thorins by Domaine des Terres Dorées drinks well on its own and is also a perfect partner with veal or poultry. Available for deliveries within Metro Manila.

Grape Variety / Blend: Gamay
Winery / Estate: Domaine des Terres Dorées

Winery

Beaujolais, France: Domaine des Terres Dorees

Jean-Paul Brun started Terres Dorées in 1979 with a mere 4 hectares of vines in Charnay in the southern Beaujolais, an area which is slightly warmer and more limestone-driven versus the more renowned granite-rich cru villages in the northern Beaujolais. Today, the Charnay estate is around 30 acres, but with an additional 15 hectares farmed in the crus. The farming in Charnay is organic and includes working of the soils; the cru parcels are farmed sustainably and the soils are not worked. Harvest is by hand and of well-ripened but not over-ripened fruit, so alcohol levels are generally modest.

Annual Terres Dorées production is around 350,000 bottles, 85-90% of it from estate fruit with the rest of it sourced. From the beginning, Jean-Paul carved a different path for himself in Beaujolais. Not only does he not chaptalize (common practice here), he has also always eschewed the relatively modern technique of carbonic maceration, in favor of traditional Burgundian vinification. He believes the fruit is best expressed by the grapes’ indigenous yeasts, rather than by adding industrial yeast. Brun’s view is that Beaujolais drinks best at a lower degree of alcohol and that there is no need to add sugar.
