Château Moulin de Clotte - 2007, Vignobles Lannoye, Côtes de Castillon

Out of stock

The opinion of the sommelier

2007 is clearly not the best vintage in Bordeaux. However, several winemakers, by working hard, still managed to produce nice wines. This is the case of this wine from Côtes de Castillon. A young wine is often characterized by its very fruity aromas, and a more evolved one like this one shows aromas of fresh grass and humus. Ideal with Camembert cheese and sliced truffles!  

 

Terroir

The 8-acre estate Chateau Moulin de Clotte is located in the Côtes de Castillon vineyard, just next to Saint-Emilion. The soil is clay and limestone which is a very nurturing environment for the roots of the vine.This part of the Bordeaux region is maybe the best place on Earth to grow Merlot, the main grape variety there.

lecepage Grape variety

Merlot is a grape variety that gives intensely dark wines. The wines are full-bodied yet low in tannins, with flavours of plum and sometimes chocolate as the wine ages. Cabernet Franc will bring fine tannins and aromas of red berries and spices. The blend of Merlot and Cabernet Franc gives the wine complexity and a beautiful bouquet.

lemillesime Vintage

The 2007 vintage in Bordeaux is a decent but not amazing vintage. It suffered from the comparison with the 2005 or 2009 vintages that were amazing! The warm temperatures in April have resulted in a rapid flowering. But May and June were very rainy and late August was terrible with four days of very intensive rain! Things got much better in September and the harvest happened in good conditions. 

lerecoltant A winemaker, a family

Françoise Lannoye discovered late she had a vocation for winemaking. Before, she was working in Paris with her husband as a real estate agent. Buther parents, who were farmers themselves, taught her to love wine and terroir when she was a child.So it is quite naturally that she decided to go to Bordeaux in order to make wine. That is why she bought Chateau Moulin de Clotte 12 years ago.
