Château du Moulin-à-Vent Couvent des Thorins, Moulin-à-Vent — 2017 – International Wine Review – 91 Points
Made from the extremely low yielding (1 ton/acre) 2017 vintage, the Couvent des Thorins offers a dark fruited nose of dark berry and cherry with an light earthy note. The aromas carry over to the nicely integrated, medium plus weight palate. Savory tones lend complexity, and the finish is fresh with fine grained tannins. Made from hand harvested fruit from estate vineyards, about 20 percent whole bunches from older (40+ years) vines. Aged 16 months in stainless steel.
