Clos du Moulin is 2.2-hectare parcel in the village of Ludes. The vineyard derives its name from a wooden windmill that used to stand on the property until 1789, when it was destroyed by fire. The mill was rebuilt in stone, and remained on the site up until the beginning of the 20th century. In 1981, Cattier planted half of the vineyard with chardonnay and when these vines came into production 3 years later, he pulled up the other half of the vineyard and replanted that half with pinot noir. In the early 1980s, Jean-Jacques Cattier created a special bottle for the Clos du Moulin printing on the back label the three years involved in that particular blend.
