93 points James Suckling: "A beautifully rendered expression of this quite intense terroir. The spicy, fragrant lift is entrancing and there’s a very suave, supple, red-cherry core that is framed in some seriously regal tannins. From organically grown grapes. Drink or hold. (2/18/19)"

93 points and 'Cellar Selection,' Wine Enthusiast: "[$30 list] Produced, like all this producer's wines, from organically grown grapes, this is an aromatic wine. Wood aging has given the wine its richness and full, generous structure. Spice, black fruits and acidity are all coming together. Drink from 2020. Alcohol 13%. (Mar 2019)"

92 points John Gilman (View From the Cellar): "The 2017 Moulin-à-Vent from Richard Rottiers is a superb example of this year, as the ripeness of the fruit is beautifully measured and really gives the wine depth on both the nose and palate, while still remaining fresh and vibrant. The black fruity nose jumps from the glass in a blend of sweet cassis, black raspberries, woodsmoke, spit-roasted gamebird, gorgeous dark soil tones, violets, a touch of fresh herb tones and a topnote chicory. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied and nicely sappy at the core, with excellent focus and balance, ripe tannins and excellent length and grip on the complex and very well-balanced finish. This is a nicely structured young Moulin- à-Vent that is approachable out of the blocks, but like a 2011 example, has a bit of backend tannin that will soften nicely with a few years of bottle age. First class juice. 2023-2050. (Jan/Feb 2019)"

92 points Josh Raynolds (Vinous): "[$30 list] Deep, bright-rimmed ruby. Ripe dark berries, cherry preserves, pungent flowers and smoky minerals on the highly perfumed nose. Offers sappy, spice-accented cherry, blackberry and cola flavors that turn sweeter as the wine stretches out. The floral note comes back on a very long, sweet finish that's framed by fine-grained, well-knit tannins. Drink: 2021-2029. (Oct 2019)"
