Kumeu River
Chardonnay, Village, Kumeu – 2017

A generous array of ripe pears and poached peaches with a ripe and forward feel. This has a lot of flavor. Nicely resolved at the finish. Drink now. Screw cap.

Kumeu River
Chardonnay, Village, Kumeu – 2017

The Wine Advocate
89 Points

Incorporating approximately 20% Hawke's Bay fruit from a recently acquired vineyard, the 2017 Village Chardonnay is one of the strongest I can recall, despite a challenging vintage. Mainly fermented and aged in older barrels, it's medium-bodied and plump in the mouth, with notes of peach and pineapple.

Slightly yeasty opening on the nose, followed by iris, pear and almonds. Round and full on the mid-palate, intense and tangy, squeaky clean finish. A new release from a very interesting Rive.

Mineral, zest and salinity lend real finesse. Persistent mousse and an attractive bitter note on the finish.

Château du Moulin-à-Vent
Couvent des Thorins, Moulin-à-Vent – 2016

vinous
91 Points

Lurid ruby. Fresh raspberry, blood orange and potpourri scents are complemented by white pepper and smoky mineral nuances. Juicy and precise on the palate, offering appealingly sweet red berry and peppery spice flavors and a hint of candied lavender. Shows very good energy and definition on the subtly tannic finish, which hangs on with strong, tangy persistence.

Couvent des Thorins, Moulin-à-Vent – 2016

The Wine Advocate
90 Points

Notes of pomegranate, raspberry and plum introduce the 2016 Moulin-à-Vent Couvent des Thorins, a medium-bodied, open-knit and mouthwateringly saline wine with tangy acids, fine tannins and an open-knit, rounded profile. Matured almost entirely in tank and consequently unmarked by the oak influence that inflects the domaine's grander bottlings, its purity and transparency a

The 2016 Moulin-à-Vent displays aromas of red berry fruit and creamy recently used oak, followed by a medium to full-bodied, firm and concentrated palate that appears to lack a little depth and dimension.

Château du Moulin-à-Vent
Champ de Cour, Moulin-à-Vent – 2016

The Wine Advocate
91 Points

From a lieu-dit that's richer in clay, the 2016 Moulin-à-Vent Champ de Cour displays a bouquet of earthy, spicy plums and red fruit, framed by recently used oak. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, with an ampler, fleshier profile than Les Vérillats, its initially chewy tannins melting on the finish. With more concentration and less oak influence...

La Rochelle, Moulin-à-Vent – 2016

The Wine Advocate
90+ Points

The 2016 Moulin-à-Vent La Rochelle displays the most promising raw materials of any wine in the range, but it's also the most overtly oaky, with creamy vanillin and spice occluding its plummy fruit and rich soil tones. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, ample, layered and deep, but for now the wood makes it hard to read.

The Wine Advocate

Formerly known as the Croix des Vérillats, the 2016 Moulin-à-Vent Les Vérillats unfurls in the glass with notes of plummy, spicy fruit and creamy new oak. On the palate, the wine is medium-bodied, with melting tannins and creditable concentration and acidity given the difficult year, concluding with a wood-inflected finish.

The bright cherry nose leads into a medium-bodied palate that’s appealingly juicy with just a hint of slightly sappy tannin underlining it. Drink now.

Fragrant and complex, this is a sophisticated Moulin-à-Vent that’s got good structure, as well as well plenty of sour cherries. The touch of tannin at the finish is already well integrated. Drink or hold.

Still a bit closed on the nose, this rather firmly structured Moulin-à-Vent needs some time to open up and for the tannins to resolve. Powerful finish. Better from 2020.

This joyful and elegant Moulin-à-Vent has very effusive, ripe cherry and mulberry aromas. Juicy and vivid with a long, mineral finish. Drink or hold.

Blend of several parcels. All terroirs vinified separately. They use tall and rather narrow 50-hl tanks so that they have a deeper cap. 10% aged in barrel. Mid purple crimson. Lightly floral and expressive but also a fine dark dusty note. Bright and juicy and very fresh. Very fine texture, the tannins there but almost invisible. Light spice and pepper. Dark red fruit. Tight and juicy and lively dark-red fruit. Dark tangy finish.

Greyish crimson. Much more dusty/rocky mineral aroma than their blended Moulin-à-Vent; dark finesse, dark fruit without sweetness. Wine opens up more quickly than the other single site wines. Almost austere in its freshness and dry texture, paper-fine but upright. Lightly peppery.

Greyish crimson. Peppery freshness and elegance. The oak much less marked than on the Champs de Cour. Peppery freshness. Really delicate and refined dark rocky fruit. Long, fresh, dry finish. Scented in a lovely dry, dark way.

The 2016 Pinot Noir Ygnacia Hyde Vineyard is a more than worthy follow up to the stunning 2015. Lavender, rose petal, orange peel and mint lift from the glass in a silky, weightless Pinot Noir loaded with personality and sheer class. The 2016 possesses striking inner sweetness and exceptional balance from start to finish. These vines were planted only in 2010 with seven ma

They have 4.8 ha (nearly 12 acres) and lots of small parcels, from 210 to 400 m, so they are blended. 80% fermented in tank and 20% in barrel. And one barrel was new. Smells more oaky and mealy than the Mâcon-Solutré 2016. More spicy. But on the palate, lots of bright pure citrus. Rich and creamy. A slight grip extends the length and heightens the freshness.
