Olivier Merlin, Moulin-a-Vent La Rochelle 2018
Maximum 24 bottles per person.
“From vines planted in 1937. This is very dense purple in colour. It would normally be bottled in March but the intensity is such that the Merlins may hold it back further. Somewhat reductive, with concentrated dark strawberries, a touch of camphor and coffee, notable tannins, some iodine. A very weighty wine we shall have to wait for.” – Jasper Morris
