Les Vérillats, Moulin-à-Vent
Wine & Spirits
Red fruit and spice. The tannins are gentle and silky, with a bergamot spice.
Deep ruby. Powerful, spice-accented dark berry and cherry aromas are complicated by suggestions of musky earth, mocha and violet. Densely packed and expansive on the palate, spicy lift to the appealingly sweet bitter cherry, blackberry and floral pastille flavors. Finishes very long and chewy, with dusty tannins building slowly.
Ripe sour-cherry aroma and satisfying harmony of fruit, medium body, silky tannins and lively acidity, make this an attractive and quite sophisticated Moulin-à-Vent.
This has a quiet, cool, character which promises a long future. Ripe tannins and under-stated oak add to the structure and appeal.
