Tasting Notes

    Goedhuis, September 2012,
    Score: 92

    A stunning St Emilion full of silky velvety fruit so typical of the Vauthier family style. A wine which exudes its provenance and breeding, it is rich and rounded supported by ripe approachable tannins. A wine for those who like to drink their wines young. It can be approached now but it has plenty of life in it for many years to come.

    Score: 90-93

    A big Moulin St Georges that encompasses lots of liqueur-like fruit and ripe, dense tannins. Despite its prowess, it remains fresh and lifted. It finishes long and pure.

    Robert Parker, February 2012,
    Score: 90

    Copious aromas of licorice, charcoal, damp earth, black raspberries, black currants and a hint of espresso jump from the glass of this deep purple-colored 2009. Medium to full-bodied with sweet tannin, plenty of baby fat and a seductive personality, it should drink well for 10-15+ years. Drink: 2012 - 2027

    Score: 88-90

    Consistently a good value pick among shrewd consumers, this wine, from one of the estates Alain Vauthier owns in St.-Emilion beside the famous Ausone, has a dark purple color, a big, sweet kiss of black currants, raspberries, crushed rock, and floral notes. It is medium to full-bodied, displays good, sweet tannin, and comes across as slightly unevolved and may have just finished malolactic fermentation. I am not so sure it is as strong as his 2005, but this wine is very promising nevertheless.

    A real explosion of fruit on the nose and palate - raspberry, cherry. Almost fruit liqueur. Smooth, creamy palate with length and freshness on the finish. Drink 2016-2030.

    Score: 90-93

    Offers blueberry and mineral on the nose. Full-bodied, with a tight tannin structure and juicy fruit. Bright acidity. Very lively.

Producer

Château Moulin St-Georges

Another château which falls under the Ausone umbrella, and like Ausone receives similar vinification. This includes cold maceration, a technique which gently extracts the colour and fruit before alcoholic fermentation.

Region

St Emilion

South of Pomerol lies the medieval, perched village of St Emilion. Surrounding St Emilion are vines that produce round, rich and often hedonistic wines. Despite a myriad of soil types, two main ones dominate - the gravelly, limestone slopes that delve down to the valley from the plateau and the valley itself which is comprised of limestone, gravel, clay and sand. Despite St Emilion's popularity today, it was not until the 1980s to early 1990s that attention was brought to this region. Robert Parker, the famous wine critic, began reviewing their Merlot-dominated wines and giving them hefty scores. The rest is history as they say. Similar to the Médoc, there is a classification system in place which dates from 1955 and outlines several levels of quality. These include its regional appellation of St Emilion, St Emilion Grand Cru, St Emilion Grand Cru Classé and St Emilion Premier Grand Cru Classé, which is further divided into "A" (Ausone and Cheval Blanc) and "B" (including Angélus, Canon, Figeac and a handful of others). To ensure better accuracy, the classification is redone every 10 years enabling certain châteaux to be upgraded or downgraded depending on on the quality of their more recent vintages.
