2017 Domaine Diochon Moulin-á-Vent Vieilles Vignes

SKU #1376946 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Patenôtre opted to destem 80% of the crop this year due to hail damage, and the resulting 2017 Moulin-à-Vent Vieilles Vignes is a great success, unfurling in the glass with a charming bouquet of red cherries, raspberries, dried flowers and licorice. Medium to full-bodied, it’s supple, delicate and giving on the palate, with melting tannins and a fragrant finish. It’s a great success in a challenging year, and it will drink well on release. (WK) Inner quote mark (9/2018)

90 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark This light-bodied red shows purity to the steeped raspberry, apricot and cherry fruit flavors, cast with spice, dried herb and mineral elements. Light, integrated tannins lend support through the tangy, licorice-laced finish. (GS, Web-2019) Inner quote mark

K&L Notes

Diochon's Moulin-à-Vent is juicily delicious yet there is a majesty to it. It is full-blown and full-bodied, yet it has a lush, supple, swallowable texture. No hard edges. No astringency. No heat. Moulin-à-Vent is supposed to be the grandest of the region's Grands Crus, and here you sense a certain grandeur throughout the taste experience. And don't overlook the visuals. Diochon's color is always a sight to see. The color, like the flavor, is cassis-like. Bernard Diochon himself is one of the most respected and beloved figures in the region. His wild moustache looks as if it has seen the inside of a million wine glasses, and it's hard to imagine a world without wine like this.
