From a beautiful cherry color, this cuvee opens on intense aromas of red fruits and Roses. On the palate, this fleshy wine displays soft tannins and fruity flavors. Well structured and balanced this Moulin à Vent has character and is ready to be enjoyed now or could be kept in the cellar for several years.
A concentrated behemoth, the red cherry, oak, and blackberry-scented 2005 Moulin-a-Vent Carquelin is medium to full-bodied, suave, and silky-textured. Chocolate, licorice, blackberries, black cherries, and roses are found in this structured offering's super-expressive character.
Barrel Tasting: 91-92 Points
