    Justerini & Brooks Tasting note
    Château Moulin St Georges, St Emilion, 2005

    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.

    The 2017 Moulin Saint-Georges, which was bottled in April 2019, has a tight and backward bouquet with brambly red fruit, briary, cedar and light peppery aromas. It does not have the "oomph" of other vintages, though that is in keeping with the growing season. The palate is medium-bodied with a very citric opening. As I remarked out of barrel, I would have liked the season to have conferred more complexity, particularly on the finish. But as such, it is a wine that keeps within its limits: easygoing, fresh but not cerebral.

    Château Moulin St Georges

    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.
