Domaine Richard Rottiers – Foudres 2016 – Moulin-à-Vent

The nose is aroma, quite elegant and offers a slight gourmandise, a slight richness as well as a nice maturity. It reveals notes of fleshy blackberry, fleshy violet plum and slight notes of ripe wild berries associated with slight touches of flowers, Zan as well as a discreet hint of blond tobacco, subtle touches of caramelization as well as an imperceptible hint of cocoa powder (in the background). The palate is fruity, juicy, elegant, precise and offers minerality, a pretty straightness / definition, a slight tension, fleshiness as well as gourmandise. On the palate this wine expresses notes of fleshy blackberry, fleshy plum and fleshy strawberry combined with a touch of ripe redcurrant, subtle hints of vanilla/wood, chocolate as well as a hint of toasted / caramelized oak, ripe fruits as well a very discreet hint of almond. Beautiful gourmande and suave persistence. There are a touch of toasted / caramelized oak, ripe fruits, chocolate as well as a very discreet hint of almond on the persistence. A beautiful wine!
