Tasting Note:

Moulin St Georges occupies a great position just to the south east of St Emilion town on clay and limestone soils. The cépage is 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc with a production of 19,000 bottles. Simard and Fonbel were not shown at the tasting, presumably due to frost damage, so we started with Moulin St Georges. This was noticeably less wild than normal. We usually detect plenty of intoxicating bramble fruit and garrigue, but this was all about pure red berry fruit; cherry, blossom, sweet strawberries. It is quite charming and refined, but rather simple and a touch dilute.
