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. Lucien favors semi-carbonic fermentation with partial destemming, all native yeasts and about two weeks maceration with partial ageing in a mixture of barrel and cask. In the process he creates complex wines that display the best characteristics of their terroirs.

A year-round, easy drinking and heart-warming red wine, evoking images of walks through forests and picking wild berries from the bushes.

Excellent choice with barbecued meats, grilled fish, salads and Asian cuisine. Enjoy slightly chilled.

 

Lucien Lardy Moulin-À-Vent Les Thorins · Profile

Lucien’s Moulin-À-Vent has a red crimson robe. The complexity is deep, with spicy aromas, and a lovely bouquet of blueberries and violets. This wine is rich in body and character, compliments with musk and minerality that brings everything together for a beautiful long silky finish on the palate.
