The Bordeaux wine growing area is known for its variety of soil types and sub-soils. To the right of the historic path that leads to Château d’Issan are our Bordeaux Supérieur AOC plots. They are the closest to the Gironde Estuary. The soil there is mainly clayey limestone and therefore particularly suited to the Merlot grape variety, which dominates in this part of the vineyard. Generally, it contributes 90% of the blend, which is unique in the Medoc. The ruins of the old 17th century windmill, which gave this wine its name, are still in the middle of the vineyard. This wine expresses the richness, the suppleness and the fruit of its origins; it has been on the market since 1988. Its annual production is about 40,000 bottles.
