Château du Moulin-à-Vent, Moulin-à-Vent
The 2010 Moulin-à-Vent is fabulous. Vibrant, fresh and beautifully translucent, the 2010 is magical. Red berry fruit, mint, orange peel and spice all emerge from the glass, with lively acids and persistent beams of supporting tannin that give the wine its shape and overall sense of energy. Yields were 22 hectoliters per hectare, which is lower than average. The 2010 has a very bright future. This is a terrific showing.
