Moulin-a-Vent Le Carquelin Domaine Labruyere 2016

Moulin-a-Vent Le Carquelin Domaine Labruyere 2016

Domaine Labruyère is Moulin-à-Vent’s oldest estate, founded in 1850. It consists of 14 hectares of vines, all in the Moulin-à-Vent appellation and produces stunning, age-worthy wines which not only represent a pinnacle of what is happening in the region, but also offer some of the best value in the world of fine wine. The 2016 vintage in Moulin-à-Vent saw a rather spectacular confluence of weather. Nerve-wracking, to be sure, but the end results are exceptional. Le Carquelin is one of the most cherished parcels in Moulin-à-Vent, arguably the one which looks most resembles Pinot Noir, elegant and perfumed, albeit with muscular tannins in youth, repaying a few years in the cellar.

"Spicy red berries and rose petals on the nose, a nod both to the pefume of the Côte d’Or and the force of the Rhone valley. There is a dry-earth minerality on the nose too. The palate is forceful and initially defined by muscle and extract, before fleshy red berries make themselves felt on the mid-palate, lending a refreshing succulence. Fine chalky minerality emerges, contributing to an elegantly grippy finish. Excellent ageing potential here"
