Owned by the Vauthier family, this wine receives much of the same attention as the historic Ausone vineyard. Open-knit with lots of ripe black cherry and black currant fruit as well as crisp acids, a hint of chalky minerality, and a medium-bodied finish, it can be enjoyed over the next 7-8 years.
Vineyard on the slope up to Pavie. 80% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc on clay-limestone. Deep dark purple colour. Light, fresh, rather delicate. Fresh and just ripe.
16.5/20 - Julia Harding (JancisRobinson.com).

Consistently a great buy amongst shrewd consumers - the Vauthier family and winemaker Phillipe Baillarguest are putting as much effort into producing the best Château Moulin Saint-Georges as they are with Château Ausone itself. Moulin Saint-Georges is produced in the same way; super-strict fruit selection and the wine is matured in 100% new French barriques from anywhere between 18 to 20 months. This is a truly fabulous property and their wine is world-class in my opinion...
