Champ de Cour, Moulin-à-Vent
This focused, light-to-medium bodied red offers a medley of steeped black cherry, tangy blackberry and apricot notes flanked with tea, cedar and anise elements. A vivid hint of rosewater defines the long finish.
Champ du Cour is a windy single-vineyard sited on typical granite/clay soils. Very attractive violet and peony aromas with intense dark berry and cherry fruit on the palate, backed up with brisk acidity. Refined, elegant Moulin-à-Vent with character but also a lot of class. Slightly grainy tannins suggest a few months in bottle will reap further rewards.
