I find creamy, fruity flavors in Richard Rottiers’ 2014 Moulin a Vent


Richard Rottiers is a relative newcomer to Moulin a Vent but not to winemaking.  After stints all over the world and more locally at Chateau Thivin, he started his own domaine in 2007, producing wine from 3 hectares of vines aged 40 to 80 years.  Today he has expanded to 5 hectares. His 2014 Domaine Richard Rottiers, Moulin a Vent was vinified traditionally with upbringing in wood.  It offers lovely, creamy flavors of various fruits which become a literal fruit punch.  This zippy wine will age for a few years but it is hard to resists its current youthful state.  This is a top-notch wine at a great price. This wine is available at MacArthur Beverages.

2014 Domaine Richard Rottiers, Moulin a Vent – $22
Imported by Constantine Wines.  This wine is 100% Gamay sourced from vines up to 80 years old .  It was aged 6 to 10 months in wooden vats and barrels.  Alcohol 13%.  There are attractive hints of greenhouse in the round, almost creamy varietal flavors of red fruit, cranberry, and tart blue fruit.  The fine, drying tannins are present before the flavors morph towards fruit punch.  Things wrap up with a fresh and zippy aftertaste of citric pith.  Will age but the baby fat is great right now.  *** Now – 2019.
