Domaine Richard Rottiers Moulin-à-Vent Foudres 2017
|Region||France, Beaujolais, Moulin á Vent|
|Brand||Domaine Richard Rottiers|
Named after the large barrels used for aging, this is a perfumed wine. Ripe tannins are a balanced part of the rich black fruits and intense spice that are setting the wine on a course for long-term aging. Drink from 2020.
Rottiers opted to entirely destem the 2017 Moulin-à-Vent Foudres because it was impacted by hail, and the wine has turned out well, offering up aromas of dark berry fruit, smoky cherries, potpourri and spices. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, with impressively refined tannins and an ample core of fruit that's complemented by savory, carnal nuances. Drink Date: 2019-2029.
