Winemaker's Tasting Notes
A blend of 8 single vineyards, the Moulin-à-Vent 2017 presents a deep garnet-color. Its complex nose reveals aromas of violets, ripened red fruit and black pepper. The freshness of these granitic terroirs balances well the remarkable richness and texture. Moulin-à-Vent pairs perfectly with lighter red meat dishes.

92 Points - James Suckling
Shows berries and hints of fresh herbs. Wet earth, too. Medium-bodied, linear and tight. A solid 2017, despite problems with hail in July.

92 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

The 2017 Moulin-à-Vent wafts from the glass with a beautiful and incipiently complex bouquet of cherries, raspberries, candied peel and warm spices. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, deep and pure, framed by velvety tannins and succulent acids and concludes with a sapid, subtly oak-inflected finish.

90 Points - Wine Enthusiast

This estate, which has vines in both Moulin-à-Vent and Morgon, is well known for its richly structured wines. This bottling from a blend of vines is full of tannins, ripe blackberry fruits and acidity. Its future is assured, so wait to drink until 2021.
