Alcohol/vol 13%
A handsome, deep red color with purple tints and lovely aromas, with perfectly mature red and black fruit, hints of spice and floral notes of rose, peony and violet. Good body with fine tannins and good length. Rich, opulent and complex, finishing on a spicy note.

The 2017 Moulin-à-Vent is born from a challenging vintage in which hail took with it half of the estate's yields and two-thirds of the production of this wine. In the glass, the 2017 is soft, fruit and absolutely delicious. Although not terribly complex, the 2017 is a wine of immediate pleasure and a terrific choice for drinking now and over the next handful of years. Sweet red cherry, cinnamon, and dried flowers add intrigue.

This wine is a blend across the estate, producing rich tannins and juicy black fruits. Good acidity balances the structure of the wine, giving potential as well as present fruitiness. Drink ideally from 2021.

Light, fleshy tannins edge the black cherry, steeped raspberry and mineral notes of this light-bodied red, with savory details of grilled herb, tea and rose petal lingering into the finish. Drink now through 2023. 6,000 cases made, 1,500 cases imported.
