2008 vintage. Bernaleau family (also owners of Haut-Médoc Château de Braude and Moulis Château Galland). Situated in Arsac between Château du Tertre and Château d'Arsac. Mostly Cabernet Sauvignon (around 70%) with Merlot and 2% Cabernet Franc. Great effort in a difficult vintage. Dark red with orangy rim. Cassis, flowers and cedar wood. Textbook elegant Margaux. Drinking beautifully without the harsh tannin that characterises many 2008s. Lovely and nice value. — 2 months ago

Smells gorgeous. Smoky and dark fruit. It’s full and smooth. Versatile wine, could be with cheese board or stand up to a steak. Very easy-drinking. — a month ago
Juicy plum notes, dark chocolate and pine...Moulis reds are a Hidden gem in Bordeaux
Half Cabernet half Merlot...very enjoyable — 2 months ago
Acquired in the Maucaillou tasting room in Bordeaux in 2008, then transported back to the states in a suitcase full of laundry, deposited in my cellar where it has remained until today.
Transparent and fresh. Almost pure ruby, showing only a smidge of bricking at the edges and not much age at all. Very pretty. Earthy nose of no. 2 pencil and old spices that gradually opens to red fruits. Maybe a cliche but this is on the Burgundian side of Bordeaux. So succulent; vibrating with red fruit and lively acids. — 3 months ago
What a beauty. I bought this a few years ago at a bargain basement price and put it in the back of the cellar and forgot about it. I wish I had another one. This wine is gorgeous. A classic mature Bordeaux at its peak. This wine can easily stretch it out for another decade. Notes of cedar and tobacco — a month ago
