- 2017 Domaine Richard Rottiers Moulin-à-Vent Foudres - France, Burgundy, Beaujolais, Moulin-à-Vent (11/14/2019)
Day 1: Good price on WTSO so figure give it a try since Thanksgiving is coming up. Very fruit forward wine featuring raspberries, strawberries and cranberries. Lots of floral also and a bit sweet on the palate. This is a decent offering but certainly not even close to the 93 points a critic gave this. Easy drinking and crowd pleaser. 87 points
Day 2: Very similar to day 1. Lots of fruit and basic table wine. Nothing too exciting here and this wine will not improve with age. 87 points
Day 3: A little better so hope for this wine with some cellaring. Minerality, floral, more concentrated fruit and dust. Actually picks up some funk on the finish. Day 3 has done wonders for this wine. 89 points
Recommendation: Hold this wine for a few years and enjoy. Just not ready yet. (89 pts.)
