2017 Château Moulin-St-Georges, Grand Cru St-Emilion

There's nice plum and bramble fruit on the nose and the palate is nicely textured. This is well put together: it's approachable (almost easy) but a very nice effort.

TASTING NOTES

Deep cherry red. Spicy, lively blackcurrant fruit on the nose. Lots of sweet fruit and sweet oak on the palate. Juicy fruit in the middle. Bright and lively. Just a little too sweet-tasting for refreshment (hence the minus). Tannins a touch chewy but not at all tough.

16-/20

The dark-berry and wet-earth character is pretty. Medium body, firm and silky tannins and a fresh finish. Solid acidity.
