The vines of Moulin Saint Georges lie on the clay and limestone slopes next to Château Ausone. Yields are kept very low to concentrate the flavour, and all grapes are hand-harvested so only the best are selected to produce this great value wine.
Ripe and intense nose of black cherries, violets and blue berries with notes od vanilla. Great concentration of fruits on the palate with fine tannins and a smooth texture.
A sleeper of the vintage, regardless of vintage conditions, this St.-Emilion owned by Alain Vauthier (also the proprietor of Ausone) offers a dense ruby/purple color as well as sweet notes of incense, spring flowers, blueberries, black currants, and crushed rocks/minerals. The 2006 is deep and medium to full-bodied with sweet tannin, and a layered mouthfeel. It should last for 10-15 years.- 90 pts Robert Parker, Wine Advocate
