Michel Guignier Vin de France La Petite Oseille 2020

'We love Moulin à Vent wines for their structure and their minerality and nervy energy derived from the decayed granitic soils.

Michel no longer uses the appellation for any of his wines, but the grapes for this wine are still harvested from his plot in the Moulin a Vent but he uses the more general Vin de France appellation (which you can see in small print on the left side of the label).

Vinified the same way as Le Bonne Pioche, it had 10 days of semi-carbonic maceration in stainless steel then spent 10 months in a foudre before bottling. It has a little more complexity than La Bonne Pioche, a little spiciness, and a very pleasing light touch of reduction. 12.5% alcohol.'
