Domaine Richard Rottiers – Foudres 2017 – Moulin-à-Vent 

The nose is fruity and offers a small concentration. It reveals notes of plum, crushed cassis and small notes of black cherry, red berries combined with fine hints of chocolate, sweet spices, flowers and a very subtle hint of Cuben pepper. The palate is fruity, well-balanced and offers a good definition, an acidulous frame, juiciness, a fine straightness, suavity, a small concentration, a good structure as well as a racy minerality. On the palate this wine expresses notes of cherry, crushed blackberry and small notes of small juicy red berries associated with fine touches of cassis, violet, racy minerality, spices and a very discreet touch of blond tobacco (in the background). Tannins are fine and very discreetly firm. Good length. There are hints of zan, juicy plum, juicy blackberry / red berries and a discreet hint of chocolate on the persistence.
