A final blend for the U.S. of Diochon 2009 Moulin-a-Vent Vieilles Vignes (tasted in June, before bottling, after I tasted pre-assemblage in April) is striking for its saline, alkaline mineral suggestions as well as for its fine row of tannic teeth. Carob and chocolate; dark cherry and plum; beef marrow and bouillon combine for an imposing sense of richness of flavor. This boasts real grip, but is apt to need 6-9 months in bottle to really reveal its full potential, which hopefully will include at least 4-5 years of cellaring for those who (like me) especially enjoy their Diochon Moulin-a-Vent mature. Since 2007, Thomas Patenotre has been working Diochon’s vines on a rental basis, though the latter is still advising. (DS)
