Du Moulin, Haut-Medoc 2016


Sat next to Chasse Spleen and on one of the highest plateaux in the Médoc we find the vineyard of Château du Moulin. A moulin – or windmill – must be high in altitude or it is useless so this accounts for the wonderful sun exposure.  Owner José Sanfins just happens to be both director of Château Cantenac Brown as well as a winemaking buddy of Eric Boissenot. His day job allows him to analyse the finest equipment and techniques for his own wines – without the need for experimenting with precious few vines. His friendship means that Eric Boissenot – also a winemaker in Lamarque is often on hand to work with José during harvest, sorting and winemaking periods.

This wine has a beautiful deep ruby colour. On the nose we have lots of complexity with a blend of ripe fruits and spiced notes. A harmonious bouquet with both poise and power thanks to precise use of oak. The attack is elegant, but well structured. Ripe tannins are present but not aggressive, and the velvety finish is long and persistent.
