A tightly wound nose of blackberry and earthy spices, intermingled with blackberry fruit and herbs. A creamy texture on the palate, with high alcohol and lively morello cherry fruit, beautifully ripe tannins from new oak. A great value wine.
Alain Vauthier and Gilles Pauquet produce Moulin St Georges from the clay and limestone slopes directly to the east of Chateau Ausone. These vineyards don't enjoy quite such an auspicious aspect as Alain's flagship property, but they are capable of producing excellent wines at a fraction of the cost.
