Brilliant violet color. Pungent, spice-accented red/blue fruit and floral scents are lifted by a smoky mineral nuance that gains strength with air. Offers palate-staining black raspberry, boysenberry and mocha flavors that show excellent clarity and back-end thrust. Finishes sappy, sweet and impressively long, with a repeating floral note and smooth, well-judged tannins.

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.

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.

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.
