Moulin des Chenes

Moulin des Chenes Logo

Laurent and Julien Brechet have long admired the potential of Lirac, in the Southern Rhone; when the owner of the Moulin des Chenes vineyard retired, they jumped at the chance to take over the vinegrowing there.

Lirac lies to the west, across the river from Chateauneuf-du-Pape. It is a Rhone Cru, with a heritage of vinegrowing that is just as long, although with mixed fortunes compared to its easterly neighbour.

Quality has been varied, but with the arrival of a younger generation of growers and more modern technology, the potential of Lirac has been realised. The Brechet brothers have 16 hectares of vines in total there.
