Château Des Jacques Moulin-à-Vent Clos de Rochegrès 2015

Château des Jacques Moulin-à-Vent Clos de Rochegrès is a special cuvée from old vines that cover 24 acres. The soil of the Clos de Rochegrès is granitic, fairly shallow and overlies an extremely hard bedrock. After a portion of the grapes are destemmed, the wine is vinified in closed vats with pumping over. The wine is then matured in oak barrels for 10 to 11 months.

Fine rose and peony aromas and flavors with a touch of minerals. The wine is generous on the palate thanks to its elegant, long-lasting tannins. This wine will perfectly match red meats in sauce, venison and other game and most cheeses.

91 Points, Allen Meadows, Burghound "The nose is very ripe yet it manages to stay just short of being surmature with aromas of plum liqueur, spice, earth and a vaguely sauvage wisp. There is excellent concentration to the velvet-textured medium weight plus flavors that display ample power that continues onto the moderately warm but highly persistent and sappy finish that is shaped by very firm tannins."

90 Points, Gillian Sciaretta, Wine Spectator "A well-meshed red, with layers of plum compote, anise and blackberry reduction, edged with milk chocolate, floral and black tea elements. Ample spice notes linger onto the moderately tannic finish."
