2018 Château Moulin-St-Georges, Grand Cru St-Emilion

Nice tannins and silky fruit, pretty impressive texture and density, with coolness and vibrancy, too. This is well balanced and fresh with a sense of energy, notes of kirsch and plums, crushed rocks and pot pourri.

2018 Château Moulin-St-Georges, Grand Cru St-Emilion


Blended of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc, the 2018 Moulin Saint-Georges is deep purple-black colored and opens slowly to display notions of sautéed herbs, menthol and pencil shavings over a core of chocolate-covered cherries, baked plums and cedar plus a waft of potpourri. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is elegantly played with lively, juicy fruit framed by plush tannins and finishes with a floral skip in its step.

The alcohols are a touch higher than usual here, as at Ausone, but it retains an excellent fresh feel. This is always my wine to buy from the Vauthier lineup for the 95% of us who can't afford Ausone, and here again it is gorgeous, with the most perfect line of sight to the generous black fruits, showing sapidity and juice. 100% new oak.

Jane Anson, Decanter (April 2019)

This shows brightness and firmness with lovely tannin and acidity balance to the ripe fruit. Racy at the end.

James Suckling, jamessuckling.com (April 2019)

The 2018 Moulin Saint-Georges is plump, juicy and absolutely delicious. Although not especially complex, Moulin Saint-Georges has a sense of immediacy that is positively irresistible. Inky dark fruit, lavender, mint and licorice all flesh out in a juicy, lush Saint-Émilion that will drink well with minimal cellaring.
