« Un vin tout en fraîcheur et gourmandise sur des notes de fruits rouges mûrs et d’épices. La bouche est ronde et les tannins très soyeux. Déjà très plaisant à la dégustation aujourd’hui, sur la jeunesse ; il s’épanouira sur des notes d’évolution d’ici 3 à 5 ans.»  (Les Meilleurs Vins de France 2016 - Gault Millau). Une belle réussite !

Wine rated (guide 2016) : 14/20 (Bon vin)
Vineyard rated (guide 2020) : 1*Étoile (stars en devenir ou vignerons de qualité à la production de bon niveau, vous ne serez pas déçus en dégustant les vins de ces domaines)

About this wine : La cuvée Couvent des Thorens est sur la gourmandise. Le fruit est juteux, et la matière est harmonieuse.

About the vineyard : Acquired by the Parinet family in 2009, this jewel of the appellation has a magnificent collection of terroirs. Important work has been made by the new owners who have big ambitions for the estate. Very quickly, the quality of the wines made a spectacular qualitative leap, claiming a more modern style, with a more controlled oak aging. Another novelty since the purchase: the creation of a wide range, with the valuation of cuvées parcellaires. The latest vintages prove to be very convincing and placed the Château du Moulin-à-Vent among the major estates of designation.

Wine rated (guide 2016) : 15,5/20 (Très bon vin)

About this wine : Encore sur la réserve, ce gamay arbore une complexité élégant et très sanguine. La structure tannique est imposante mais a été très bien menée par l'élevage. A déboucher cette bouteille dans un an, le vin se détendra et gagnera en arômes.
