Brilliant in and sustained color. Great aromatic intensity, with gently wooded scents of minerality, black fruits and vanilla. Warm, rich and fleshy, this wine reveals good tannic structure, with fine and racy tannins, which give it good aging potential. Good persistence in the finish.
"A wine that still has young and fresh fruit. It has attractive acidity, a core of tannins. The weight and ripe fruit flavors are hiding in the background, offering the potential for a wine that is solid and concentrated. "
"From a property new to the Duboeuf line-up, their 2010 Moulin-a-Vent Domaine de la Vigne Romaine offers scents and flavors of sour cherry and black raspberry shadowed by their distilled counterparts. A seedy sense of invigorating tartness and bitterness as well as a firm palate feel emerge in a finish that I suspect is suffering more from the effects of its recent bottling than from wood-induced drying. It probably has several years of potential.
