Lucien Lardy

France

Terroirs Originels brings together a community of 25 vintners who continue to farm their land independently and all share the same passionate integrity to bring out the best authentic expressions of their specific heritage. The notion of conserving terroir is their priority and its protection is a vested commitment of each estate.

Lucien Lardy is proud to continue his family’s legacy of maintaining a French heritage by caring for historic vineyards in the famous cru villages of Fleurie, Morgon and Moulin-À-Vent. He vinifies each of his plots individually to achieve the true expression of each of his vineyards. In the process he creates complex wines that display the best characteristics of their terroirs.

Lucien Lardy Moulin-À-Vent Les Thorins · Profile

Sand and pink granite make up the soil of “Les Thorins”, giving these 75-year old vines the potential to offer a Gamay with a lot of freshness and a beautiful structure. The tannins are softened by a long aging in neutral oak barrels. It has a complex and spicy aroma with notes of blueberries and violets. A rich wine, characterized by musky notes and great minerality, giving way to a silky and round finish.
