Awaiting Release

89-90 Points - James Suckling

The dark-berry and wet-earth character is pretty. Medium body, firm and silky tannins and a fresh finish. Solid acidity.

16- Points - Julia Harding MW (JancisRobinson.com)

Deep cherry red. Spicy, lively blackcurrant fruit on the nose. Lots of sweet fruit and sweet oak on the palate. Juicy fruit in the middle. Bright and lively. Just a little too sweet-tasting for refreshment (hence the minus). Tannins a touch chewy but not at all tough.

The 2017 Moulin St Georges is medium garnet-purple in color with lovely notes of red currants, black cherries, black raspberries and allspice with touches of roses and garrigue. Medium-bodied with a solid backbone of grainy tannins and wonderful freshness, it finishes long.

The 2017 Moulin Saint-Georges was picked on 26 and 29 September. It has a pretty black cherry and cassis-tinged bouquet, a little tight at the moment, a tad pinched compared to previous vintages. The palate is medium-bodied with light tannin, dark berry fruit tinged with brown spices, cohesive towards the finish but it just needs to muster more complexity overall. This year, I much prefer Vauthiers’ La Clotte.
