ABOUT THIS VINTAGE
2015 was a warm year in South West France. High temperatures from April through to August ensured quality produce, and mild weather throughout September ensured a good maturation of the fruit. Although yield remained relatively low due to a lack of rain through the summer, causing the growth of smaller berries than usual, the 2015 vintage has been ranked as one of the best of the past decade.
Clay-limestone soil throughout these plots, located at the culminating point of the property surrounding the old windmill.
HARVEST AND VINIFICATION
A late September harvest to ensure the full maturation of each plant. These grapes, selected from our best plots, are hand sorted before entering the production shed. Oak barrels fermentation and aged on lees during one year.
TASTING AND PAIRING
A light yellow colour, the wine is shining. The nose is complex and expressive, fruity, floral, and vanilla flavoured. In mouth, the attack is intense. The wine is smooth, long, and slightly sugared. White meats, and hard cheese are the perfect pairing for Le Moulin de Panisseau Blanc.
