This impressive wine displays very specific aromas of black currant and peonies. Extremely refined tannins contribute substance and power. A subtle hint of cinnamon flatters the taste buds. This fine Moulin-a-Vent combines elegance, breed and silky softness, as well as superb length on the palate.
The 2008 Moulin-a-Vent Domaine des Rosiers – still in tank when I tasted it – suggests chocolate-covered raspberries and richly coats the palate while retaining enough freshness to both complement its glossy, creamy texture and keep its sheer sweetness of fruit from veering into the confection. There is a distinct note of wood but it is well integrated and does not disturb the fruit in a long finish. 89-90 points.
