Thibault Liger-Belair's Moulin-à-Vent Vieilles Vignes comes from 60- to 80-year-old vines. It has a very subtle and complex bouquet of blackberry, boysenberry and mineral scents that unfold in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with supple black fruit on the entry, but the back end exerts quite a grip.

Deep crimson. The oak is more in evidence on the nose with a touch of vanilla sweetness but also the darker - more rocky/mineral - quality that I find in the Liger-Belair wines. Spice and pepper to the fore. The structure here is more obvious as the fruit is less rich. Finesse and freshness still dominate the finish. As the wine opens up, the whole-bunch component becomes more evident in a lightly stemmy/herbal quality but not at all in excess.
