Grenadine and blackberry are underlain by roasted red meat savor as well as by dense, firm, even slightly edgy tannins in the Desjourneys 2009 Moulin-a-Vent, which I tasted in its final assemblage. I’m at a loss to locate all of the complexities I earlier discerned in the individual lots of Michelons and Chassignol that were incorporated, but the nut oils, cocoa powder, and crushed stone that add to this blend’s finishing savor help this blend testify to some of the excitement I recorded in my issue 190 barrel tastings. I suspect that it needs time to settle-down – though it has been bottled since I recorded this most recent note – and for its tannin to more completely integrate. But make no mistake: this is a long, strong performer even by the exceedingly high standards of its vintage and the even higher standards already established at Domaine Jules Desjourneys. Plan on revisiting it – as I shall – a year from now and tentatively on following it for 6-8 years.
