Cru Bourgeois – a Symbol of Luxury
The «Cru Bourgeois» distinction originated back in the Middle Ages. At the time, the Bourgeois of the Bourg, village, of Bordeaux, acquired the best land of the region and re-named the “Crus des Bourgeois” to “Crus Bourgeois”. This classification today is the guarantee of an aristocracy of the terroirs and even qualitative know-how that became a symbol of luxury.

Château Moulin à Vent and The Importance of Soil and Varietal
The Chateau has more than two centuries of existence, its chartreuse (french typical chateau) dates from the early nineteenth century and its winery was built in 1873. The terroir is a concentration of the Médoc gravel Garonne and the rest on a clay-limestone substrate, promoting a long and consistent maturation of Merlot and Cabernet Franc. This arrangement favors the expression of powerful, elegant, and racy wines.
