Guide Bettane & Desseauve des Vins de France

Wine rated (guide 2019) : 15/20 (Très bon vin)
Vineyard rated (guide 2019) : 4****Stars (The producers of very high-quality wines, those who are the glory of the French vineyard)

About the vineyard : This property with an iconic name for this appellation, formerly the Château des Thorins, was acquired by Jean-Jacques Parinet in 2009, with the ambition of the straightening to the level allowed by 30 hectares of ideally situated vineyards, on the heights of the appellation. Heavy investments have allowed for a few vintages to see very encouraging change. The 2012, in a complicated year, showed the way, the 2013 unquestionably cross bearing.

Wine rated (guide 2018) : 90/100 (Vin formidable)
Vineyard rated : Recommended (Winery recommended by the Wine Advocate - Robert Parker)

About this wine : Des notes de grenade, de framboise et de prune introduisent le Couvent des Thorins 2016 du Moulin-à-Vent, un vin salin moyennement corsé et ouvert, avec des traits acidulés, des tanins fins et un profil arrondi et uni accessible. Élevé presque entièrement en cuve et par conséquent non marqué par l'influence du chêne qui imprègne les plus grandes bouteilles du domaine, sa pureté et sa transparence sont très attrayantes.

Wine rated (guide 2019) : 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 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.
