Matured in two-year-old and older barrels this year, the 2017 Moulin-à-Vent Couvent des Thorins reveals aromas of ripe berry fruit, framed creamy oak lactones. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, with a satiny attack, succulent acids and powdery tannins. It has turned out well in this challenging vintage.

91 pts Vinous

Opaque ruby. Powerful cherry and blackberry aromas pick up smoky mineral and floral qualities as the wine opens up. Weighty, in the manner of the vintage, but showing very good energy as well, offering gently sweet black currant, cherry and violet pastille flavors that firm up slowly on the back half. Dusty tannins come in late on the finish, which hangs around with suave floral and spice notes. This wine is quite civilized both for the appellation and for the vintage.

89 pts Wine Spectator

Licorice-tinged flavors of cherry compote and ripe raspberry are well-concentrated and backed by tangy, integrated acidity. Details of tea, herb and savory spice add interest through the lightly tannic finish. Drink now through 2022.

87 pts James Suckling

The full, if rather simple strawberry and raspberry fruit is well married to a medium body and lively acidity. Dry and slightly tannic finish. Drink now.
