Olivier Merlin, Moulin-a-Vent La Rochelle 2019
“Maximum 24 bottles per person.
89-92 pts from Jasper Morris MW:
“”Medium crimson red, some fruit weight, darker fruit, some fresh chocolate, deep raspberry, good acidity. Balanced, stylish and long, with grenadine and hibiscus notes. The La Rochelle cuvée has a drier, more structured style than the regular Moulin-à-Vent and is very persistent. Tasted: June 2020″”
