La Rochelle, Moulin-à-Vent
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 Wine Advocate
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.
