Saint-Julien
Château Moulin de la Rose, 2016

Château Moulin de la Rose is a wine made on Grand Cru soils, by an owner who has run Grand Cru properties, from a family that has Bordeaux wine running through its veins, and a consultant winemaker responsible for the success of 4 of the 5 first growths. It is made up of many parcels of vines that touch such prestigious neighbours as Leoville Barton, Gruaud Larose, Beychevelle and Talbot. Château Moulin de la Rose is one of those wines you will remember for a long time. It is a perfect embodiment of the best that Saint-Julien has to offer, striking a perfect balance between power and elegance.

Tasting Note

Beautiful dark colour, the nose is powerful and elegant. The mouth is full, a festival of fresh fruits. The wine has ripe crispy tannins. Long finish.

Wine Advocate Tasting Note

The medium to deep garnet-purple colored 2016 Moulin de la Rose features red and blackcurrants, kirsch and pencil shavings aromas with nuances of earth and wood smoke. Medium-bodied, the palate is elegant and soft with great harmony. 89 Points, Lisa Perrotti-Brown, November 2018

James Suckling Tasting Note

Round and velvety tannins with juicy fruit. Medium body and a chewy finish. Slightly hollow mid-palate. Wait and see. 89-90 Points, April 2017
