Esprit de Violette

Haute Valeur environnementale

Moulis AOC – Bordeaux – France

Esprit de Violette is the result of a plot selection based on yield (maximum 50 hl per ha), terroir, the vineyard’s quality, and the grapes’ sugar content.

Esprit de Violette is close to Château Violette, whose name it borrows—in terms both of geography and of flavours. Esprit de Violette is a typical Moulis wine for its suave structure and soft tannins, yet it is also modern for its roundness, its fruitiness, and its uncomplicated taste.

Certified HVE3 as of the 2019 vintage.
