Reviews of purchase Xavier et Nicolas Barbet, Moulin-a-Vent AOP
Wine of intense red-ruby color.
The wine has a rich, harmonious taste with tones of black berries and fruits, with a balanced acidity and a long aftertaste.
The aroma of wine is filled with notes of black berries (blackberries, black currants and cherries) with spicy nuances of pepper and cloves.
Wine is recommended to be used in combination with meat dishes, barbecue, game and goat's cheeses.
Xavier et Nicolas Barbet, Moulin-a-Vent AOP - red dry wine from Gamé grapes, grown in one of the famous districts of Burgundy - Moulin-a-Van. Vines grow on the weathered granite soil, which contributes to the rapid maturation of grapes. The grapes separated from the stems are crushed and placed for 20-25 days in maceration tanks. Part of the wine is aged in barrels, which allows you to get a complex and structured wine.
Wine won a gold medal at the "Mâcon Wine Fair-2015" competition and a silver medal at the "International Gamay-2015" competition.
