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.
Intense and rich wine, with touches of smoky wood, the tannins ripe, the acidity a refreshing balancing factor. With its cherry character, there is fruit already, but wait a year and this will be impressive.
Tart-edged blackberry and cassis inform the nose and palate of Duboeuf’s almost severely-concentrated 2010 Moulin-a-Vent Domaine des Rosiers (which I tasted from tank). Pungent herb and spice accents mingle with notes from the contingent of used barriques in which a small portion of this sojourned. There is invigorating dark berry tartness and focused intensity as well as an interesting stony undertone to this wine’s penetrating finish, and it should offer outstanding value for at least 3-4 years. Surprisingly, it resists roughness or any more obvious flavors of oak in a way that the corresponding 2009 did not.
