Wine Advocate-Parker :
Raised in older barriques as well as tank and sourced primarily from the Les Caves, La Roche and Le Moulin-a-Vent lieux-dits, Chateau du Moulin-a-Vent's ôgrand vinö 2011 Moulin-a-Vent û which I last tasted from tank soon after its assemblage and just ahead of its end-of-year bottling û features richly ripe black raspberry with distilled framboise and holly berry overtones. A bite of black pepper and clove adds to the piquancy on a firm palate and reinforces the spicy influence of toasty (albeit here previously used) barrels. While less alluringly savory or floral (for now, at least) than its ostensibly lesser ôLes Terrasses du Chateauö sibling, this undeniably musters more sheer intensity and persistence, its juiciness outlasting any oak influence. Look for fine performance through 2016.
