La Rochelle, Moulin-à-Vent
Deep ruby. Powerful, deep-pitched raspberry liqueur, cherry and floral pastille aromas are lifted and sharpened by a peppery element. Rich and fleshy but energetic as well, offering appealingly sweet red fruit and spicecake flavors that show excellent concentration and are given spine by juicy acidity. Smoothly plays power off vivacity and finishes very long and sappy, with silky tannins lending shape and gentle grip.
“The colour is dense ruby with a light purple rim. Bouquet: citrus fruit (orange peel), sour cherry syrup, champignon mushrooms, earth and rock. The palate is powerful and mineral (rock and earth), with marked liquorice, excellent length..."
Wine & Spirits
"...you’ll find an ambitious wine with deep flavors, and a structure that provides both stature and grace. The beefy, beety, syrah-like fruit is potent and lasting, while mineral tannins lend it direction and detail. Built to cellar.”
