2020 Château Moulin-St-Georges, Grand Cru St-Emilion

From the Ausone stable of wines, Moulin St-Georges is a smart buy in 2020. It's a generous yet impeccably balanced St-Emilion, that shows the success of merlot in the vintage.

TASTING NOTES

So full of deeply-drawn berry fruit, fresh and juicy with touches of liquorice bud and rosemary, thirst quenching and yet thirst inducing in that amazing way that limestone can both refresh and make you thirst for more at the same time. An excellent Moulin St Georges, and such a step up from the more sandy soils that you find at Fonbel and the two Simard estates in this year's range of Vauthier-owned wines that this alone can help you understand how to navigate 2020.

Slightly awkward at the moment with the oak present (prise de bois) but fresh, firm and structured with good fruit concentration. Should knit together in time.
