2017 Château du Moulin-à-Vent Moulin-à-Vent Couvent des Thorins, 91 points

This benchmark domaine’s entry-level Moulin-à-Vent displays deep cherry and dark berry character, along with the power and structure that defines the appellation. The 2017 is fruit-forward and a bit of air brings out vibrant mineral and floral qualities while taming its youthful tannins. (JR)

Cellar Favorites

Carbonnieux 1947 bottle

1947 Carbonnieux Blanc

Mature white Bordeaux is rarely discussed and, to be honest, rarely tasted. In my own experience, lunches or dinners commencing with a venerable Bordeaux Blanc are as regular as Halley’s comet. That’s a pity, because whenever they do form the opening act, they offer pertinent reminders of their quality.
