An astoundingly good value Claret, from an estate which has been passed down through 13 generations of family ownership. Beautiful, dark ruby tint and aromas of spice and ripe fruit. Ripe tannins assert their presence without aggression and the finish is long and persistent. This punches high above its Haut-Medoc classification.
French red wine from Bordeaux, Haut-Medoc France, made with Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc.
Château Moulin Rouge has been passed down through thirteen 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 St 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 Medoc appellation”.
