Château Moulin Saint-Georges

Saint Émilion Red Bordeaux Blend 2010

Wow what an amazing buy. Complex nose, classic but complex. Right bank stunner. Cedar, truffle, cassis, olive tapenade , slate, salt, with even an iron complement. Quite structured with amazing tannins still rounding out the fruit. Dark berries, blueberries , ripe blackberries, great tannins to give this wine the structure it needs to keep on aging. Great now, would love to try again in another 5 years. 14.5% — 3 months ago

Domaine Des Chers Moulin-A-Vent Vieilles Vignes 2016

This is all the things you want from Cru Beaujolais! Smoked pepper salami, dark plum, violets, blackcherry and lifted carbonics. Juicy, with racy minerality and firm acidity. There’s just enough structure back by boisenberry and plum fruit. Balanced. Decent length. Excellent QPR. — 3 years ago

Château Moulin Riche

Saint Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 2019

2019 vintage. Previously a label for the second wine of Château Léoville-Poyferré, but a separate estate since the 2009 vintage. Moulin Riche is a 20 hectares vineyard in one block, planted with 48% Cabernet Sauvignon, 29% Merlot and an unusually high Petit Verdot percentage of 23%. This 2019 is a blend of 69% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot and 11% Petit Verdot. It features an attractive nose with cassis, blackberry and violets. It is definitely made in the Léoville-Poyferré style (the sexiest of the 3 Léovilles) with its lush ripe fruit and perfectly ripe tannic backbone. It would be interesting to compare this to the second wine of Léoville-Poyferré. Should age well, but very attractive already. Abv. 14%. — 5 months ago

Château Moulin Delille

St. Estèphe Red Bordeaux Blend 2016

This is a successful and promising unclassified Saint Estéphe from the wonderful 2016 vintage, and a pleasant surprise at around £8/half. The wine features a classic Bordeaux nose of blackcurrant, cassis, sandalwood and an alluring graphite edge, with good concentration and depth to the palate. Supple tannins and a moderate abv of 14% keep this fresh, but it has a youthfulness to it which promises some improvement with age. — a year ago

Domaine Diochon

Cuvée Vieilles Vignes Moulin-à-Vent Gamay 2020

Presented double-blind. In the glass, the wine is a deep ruby, bordering purple color with medium viscosity and a transparent core with a slightly watery rim. Some rather significant staining of the tears. On the nose, dark fruits dominate with some purple flowers and the slightest hint of baking space. On the palate, some rather significant tannin which I would place at medium+. Acid is also medium+. The wines comes across quite primary and I find myself rather conflicted. Based on the evidence, I’m leaning towards Norther Rhone…from a new-age producer in Saint Joseph…but it’s missing the rotundone and deli meats that I would normally associate with Syrah. Never the less, I stuck with my gut and called Saint Joseph 2018. I didn’t even consider Moulin-à-Vent but it makes so much more sense! I would love to try this wine after 2027. Those who are patient will be rewarded handsomely. — 6 months ago

Château de Fonbel

Saint-Émilion Red Bordeaux Blend 2015

2015 vintage. Owned by the Vauthier family (Ausone, Moulin Saint Georges and La Clotte). A blend of 80% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon and interestingly 5% Carnenere and 5% Petit Verdot. Seriously reduced, I wildly double-decanted the wine, and struggled with the nose for over an hour before it finally started to shine. My patience was rewarded as the beast miraculously turned into some kind of a beauty. Ripe red fruit, violets and a mineral touch. — a year ago

Ultreia Saint Jacques Mencía

Heady nose of blackberries, jammy purple fruit, brambly and peppery aromas, and then surprisingly lifted on the palate. Sappy with a uniquely Spanish garrigue quality. Refined in its structure and reminiscent of cru Beaujolais in the realm of brouilly or moulin a vent... but at 15 years ago prices. Such a generous wine! Plenty of freshness, spice and raw pleasure to spare. — 2 years ago

@Mike R increasingly rare for a sub-$20 wine to deliver so much on so many fronts... aroma, structure, complexity, and pure enjoyment.
