Moulin-la Viguerie is a very historic estate. Owner, Gaël Petit's family has run this estate since around 1900. In fact, his great-great grandpappy, Aimé Roudil was the first president of the Tavel syndicate in 1923 and actually was the key leader in 1936 for getting the region's appellation status.
Gaël took over from his mother in 1992 and is now the president of the Tavel syndicate (circles). They own 15 ha of vineyards in Tavel, in all three major sectors: Olivet, Vallongue and Vestides. Vestides, the majority of vineyards, is a unique terroir. Clay on the top soil and then moves to limestone, giving the grapes here bright fruit and minerality. And that is ABUNDANTLY CLEAR on this wine. 50% Grenache, 30% Cinsault, 10% Syrah, 10% Mourvedre and Bourboulenc and Clairette. 50 year old vines on average. And winemaking is very clean and in cement for the whole ride.
Thus, this is a wine that is wonderfully ripe and bright and the texture is just explosive! Crunchy fruit that makes you want to drink the entire bottle.
