2003 Château Moulin-St-Georges, Grand Cru St-Emilion

Located across the road from Ausone and under the same ownership and management, and in many respects a junior version of the great premier grand cru classé estate. Moulin-St-Georges is made to extremely high standards by proprietor Alain Vauthier and his team. A predominantly Merlot cuvée, common opinion suggests that this is one of the outstanding quality/price saint-émilions of the vintage.

2003 Château Moulin-St-Georges, Grand Cru St-Emilion
Château Moulin-St-Georges

Sometimes referred to as baby Ausone, Moulin-St-Georges is part of the Ausone stable and offers masterful St-Emilion at a fraction of the cost. It has been part of the Vauthier family (who own Château Ausone) since 1921, although its history in St-Emilion stretches back much further. The grapes are grown on gently sloping, south-west facing soils and are predominantly Merlot with some Cabernet Franc. The wine is meticulously made by the same team who make Château Ausone and who employ the same fastidious methods in its production. The château only makes one wine, but it is a superb example of finely crafted, but affordable St-Emilion.
