    Situated on the southerly entrance to the town of St Emilion, this is a beauty, consisting of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc. Vibrant purple in colour, this is all subtlety and elegance. Lovely perfumed aromas, with hints of violets and blossoming wild flowers. Very rounded with a silky texture. Long and hugely rewarding. Fabulous. DR

    The 2016 Moulin Saint-Georges has a beguiling, pure black cherry and bilberry bouquet that develops subtle pressed iris scents with time. The oak (85% new) is very well integrated. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin and vanilla-y red berry fruits that gently grip the palate, leading to an almost candied finish. This feels long and tender, maybe without the grip of its Vauthier stablemate Haut-Simard, but with very good length. Superb. 2022 - 2040

    The 2016 Moulin St Georges is a blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc picked from 11-15 October and matured in 85% new oak. This has a slightly lighter and airy bouquet than the Haut Simard, perhaps a touch of more austere compared to the 2015 last year. The palate is medium-bodied with supple, juicy tannin that belie the structure underneath. There is just a touch of tightness here, expected at this nascent juncture, quite linear towards the finish, yet there is good persistence here. On par with the 2015 for sure, although we have to wait and see whether it will be better. Drink Date 2021 - 2038

    The 2016 Moulin Saint-Georges is a soft, supple Saint Émilion that will drink well pretty much upon release. Understated and gracious, the 2016 offers lovely purity from start to finish. Sweet floral notes add striking aromatic lift to a wine that is built on length and persistence as opposed to size. Even at this early stage, Moulin Saint-Georges is absolutely delicious.

    A deep and pretty wine with lovely texture and fruit. Medium body, fine tannins and a savory finish. Delicate.

    A very firm and focussed wine, Moulin has taken a step up in 2016 with much more length and power coupled with more detail on the palate and a more enchanting aroma, too. This is a superb wine.

    Some richness of fruit - and lots of sweetness - with a tightness on the end. Drink 2025-2038

    The best of the “lesser” wines in the Ausone stable in 2016, partly because it is more sensitively oaked, this is fine, floral and comparatively forward in style, with red berry fruit, notes of tobacco and baking spices and a fresh, elegant finish. 2020-28

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.
