Domaine Richard Rottiers, Moulin-à-Vent 2010

Rottiers Moulin Vent 2010 #1

Imported by Paul M. Young Fine Wines, Los Angeles CA.

Five years on.

2.5 h/a across nine parcels, 50-year-old vines, semi-carbonic maceration before four months in wooden vats (of which 30% are burgundy barrels from Chablis).

Fullish ruby.  A shimmery expression of Moulin-à-Vent’s powdery, purple iridescence, with lusty flavors of iris, game, musky spice, dark-skinned plum, cherry and grape.  Buoyant for a wine so lush, a reflection of the pink granite terroir.  Will still improve.  Now – 2020+.
