Deep, bright-rimmed ruby. A highly complex bouquet evokes an array of red/blue fruits, flowers and spices, along with hints of vanilla, mocha and licorice. Stains the palate with sweet boysenberry, candied plum and violet pastille flavors that are underscored by a vein of juicy acidity. Delivers a suave blend of power and finesse and shows no rough edges. Closes on a smoky note, with steadily building tannins, a touch of bitter cherry and impressive tenacity.

A modern style, with rich touches to the black cherry compote and raspberry reduction notes, hinting at licorice, rose petal and smoke.

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.

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.
