STRUCTURE AND ELEGANCE
The 278 meter high windmill (Moulin-à-Vent), surrounded by vineyards, dates back to the 15th century and is a classified historical monument. It represents the prestige and pride of the appellation. The appellation is small (640 hectares) and straddles two villages, between Burgundy and the Rhône. After a few years, the wines develop aromas of iris, faded roses, spices, ripe fruits, undergrowth and truffles; they are structured and elegant. Younger wines are floral and fruity, with aromas of violet and cherry.
