PRÉLUDE DU GRAND MOULIN

I love wines for their delicacy and complexity, and I’m passionate about music. Prélude du Grand Moulin is a perfect blend of my family’s wine legacy and my personality. When I play my favourite piano scores, I let myself escape from my every-day job as operating director. For this special wine of Château Le Grand Moulin, I have selected with care the best notes of my vine repertoire, blended them together to my own beat in order to get a harmonious and timeless finish : the prelude of my vision of wine.

Wine-making process :

Mechanical harvest at the beginning of october. Cold maceration prior to the fermentation according the quality of the grape. Slow alcoholic fermentation with pumping over twice a day then delestage. Smooth maceration during 3 weeks at 22 Celsius degrees. Ageing with lees in French-oak barrels of 225 litres (1/3 of new barrels) during 12 months without racking, in a reducing environment to maintain fruit aromas.

Deep purple in color. Pleasant aromas of confit dark fruit with caramelized, spicy notes. The palate is elegant, underpinned by pronounced yet entirely unaggressive tannins that emphasize a long, complex finish.

Wine pairings :

Prime rib of beef
