94 points Robert Parker
When most recently tasted last December, the Desjourneys 2010 Moulin-a-Vent Les Michelons Vieilles Vignes outdid the already high expectations I expressed in Issue 196, but I leave it to readers to consult my previous review for additional sensory details. I’ll confine myself now to the observation that stoniness and peat-like smokiness have strikingly added to the complexity on display here, the latter to the point where you can imagine a bit of malt whiskey (without its alcohol) having been mingled with the seamlessly ripe, yet freshly concentrated dark berry and plum fruit. Plan to follow this at least through 2020. (The Desjourneys “regular” Moulin-a-Vent, tasted alongside, performed in accordance with the upper bound of my Issue 196 point spread.)
