A firm and structured cru wine from 100-year-old vines that has layers of firm fruits and tannins. It is a wine that is likely to mature well, with its wood aging and dry core. A blend from four parcels, it is concentrated and with a rich black-cherry character. Drink this exceptional wine, from old-vine hunter Stéphane Aviron, starting in 2020.
Deep ruby. Powerful, smoke-accented aromas of ripe dark berries and cherry pit pick up a subtle incense nuance with aeration. Densely packed bitter cherry, cassis and succulent herb flavors deepen and become sweeter on the back half. Closes juicy, broad and long; building tannins lend shape and solid grip. (JR)
The 2015 Moulin a Vent Vieilles Vignes offers more fruit than either the Juliénas or Fleurie on the nose: blackcurrant leaf, mulberry and touches of dried herb. The palate is medium-bodied with grippy tannins, chewy in the mouth with a slightly aggressive finish. This started well but it lacks grace and precision on the finish. I was expecting more given the vintage.(NM)
A medley of blackberry, plum and black cherry flavors are woven together with anise and sweet spice accents in this plump, light- to medium-bodied red. Drink now through 2020.
