"Gorgeous cassis and Lapsang souchong tea aromas pull you into this red, which offers a coiled core of currant, blackberry and black cherry fruit seamlessly woven with roasted mesquite and incense notes. Shows deceptive grip on the finish, with the cassis note echoing. A rock-solid version, with appealing character. Best from 2015 through 2025. 900 cases made. -JM" (11/13)
"Henri Tacussel, a close friend of Baron Le Roy of Chateau Fortia, sold his estate to Alberte and robert Moulin in 1976. The Moulin-Tacussel cellars are located in Chateauneuf's town center. They started estate-bottling their wine in 1985."
"Covering 7.85 ha (including 0.6 ha of white wine varieties), Moulin-Tacussel has 11 plots scattered across the appellation. They produce two red and one white Chateauneuf-du-Pape. The regular red Chateauneuf is made from 70% Grenache, 10% Syrah, 10% Mourvedre, and a 10% mix of Cinsault, Counoise, and Muscardin. The grapes are completely destemmed, and the wine is aged for 12 months in foudres and small oak barrels." - The Chateauneuf-du-Pape Wine Book, Harry Karis
