Clos du Moulin

Elegant and complex

Covering just 2.2 hectares, the Clos du Moulin is one of Champagne’s two historic walled vineyards and is located on the sunny slopes of the Montagne de Reims near Chigny-les-Roses. The expert team at Cattier has taken three vintages, selected for their ability to age gracefully, and blended them into a wine which reflects their unique origins. The Clos du Moulin Rosé is a single-vineyard champagne and an expression of eleganceand fruit. Each bottle has its own unique number.

Clos du Moulin Description

Description

Eyes : in the glass, this has a golden yellow colour with consistent, fine bubbles forming an elegant chain through the middle of the wine.

Nose : the nose opens with intense aromas of mirabelle plum, orchard fruit (apple and pear), stewed red berries (strawberry and raspberry) and lemon. These are enriched by notes of almond, spice, praline and pear charlotte.

Palate : a wonderful freshness and summer fruit aromas (mirabelle, peach and melon). These meld gracefully into notes of praline, red berry (cherry, strawberry and raspberry), dairy caramel and spices (vanilla and cinnamon). The finish is long and strong, with sweet notes of citrus and clove to round it out at the end. This champagne is deliberately very dry, ensuring an extremely harmonious balance in the glass.

Clos du Moulin Food pairings

Food pairings

The Clos du Moulin Brut Premier Cru is an exceptional champagne, and the perfect accompaniment to duck à l’orange, foie gas or even a wild mushroom risotto. It will also pair well with white meat, such as a mild chicken curry. And of course, it will be an exquisite partner for harder cheeses such as young Comté or Beaufort.
