    Product description

    This exquisite wine originates from a distinguished 44-acre estate near the Gironde estuary. It is a blend of 50% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 10% Cabernet Franc. Nestled 35 kilometers from Bordeaux along the Route des Châteaux in Cussac-Fort-Médoc, the estate is a mere 6 kilometers from Margaux and adjacent to Saint-Julien. The wine undergoes a 12-month maturation in French oak barrels, with one-third of the barrels being replaced annually, yielding a limited production of approximately 8,500 cases.

    This wine exudes opulence with its generous notes of ripe black and red berry fruits, harmoniously intertwined with nuances of spice and oak. The palate is intense, displaying a concentrated medley of fruit flavors complemented by refined tannins. Its dark ruby color is accompanied by an aromatic explosion of ripe fruit and exotic spices. On the palate, these flavors persist, offering a sophisticated blend of ripe fruit and spice underscored by a distinct woody elegance.

     

  • About the producer

    About the producer: Château du Moulin Rouge

    This estate has been passed down through 13 generations of the same family and it would be an understatement to say that they were passionate about it. It has a great position just south of Saint-Julien-Beychevelle, they use plenty of new oak and everything is worked by hand. A favourite of Robert Parker, who in his book ‘Bordeaux’ describes it as: ‘… somewhat reminiscent of such wines as Hortevie and Terrey-Gros-Caillou. Of course, du Moulin Rouge is significantly less expensive since it is entitled only to the Haut-Médoc appellation’. Elevated to Crus Bourgeois Supérieur in 2020. Read more…
