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.
"This is a south-east facing 1.5 hectare site with vines over 50 years old, planted at 10,000 plants per hectare on granitic soils, with pebbles under thick, dense clay. The wine is aged in large, mainly old oak, (5% new) 600 litre demi-muids, for 15 months. This is an intense dark red, jet-shot, rich in black cherry, forest fruits with a heady, floral perfume. There is a saline minerality which adds focus and direction to a generous palate and certain savoury notes add depth."
