    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.

    Jane Anson, Inside Bordeaux
    A luxurious feel, with velvety tannins, enjoyable ripe black fruits, gourmet touches of smoked vanilla root and liqourice, all well drawn out through the palate, and providing plenty of estate signature. A well balanced luscious wien with a saline limestone twist. 3.55ph, 100% new oak. 28hl/h yield, smaller than across the rest of the Ausone range because of 50 year old vines planted almost entirely by Alain Vauthier when he arrived 1970. Harvest September 19 to 26.

    A blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc, the 2022 Moulin Saint-Georges has a deep garnet-purple color. It bursts with bombastic scents of juicy black plums, blueberry pie, and warm cassis, leading to touches of cedar chest, menthol, and lavender. Big, rich, and full-bodied in the mouth, the palate is completely coated with black and blue fruits, supported by firm, velvety tannins, finishing long and decadent. It will need some time to come round, but promises to be a blockbuster!

    The 2022 Moulin Saint-Georges was picked 19 to 26 September and is aged for 18 months in French oak. Black cherries and bilberry fruit, oyster shell and light cedar scents on the nose, it just needs to knit together during its élevage. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins, lightly spiced on the entry, then quite linear with a dash of black pepper on its quite graphite-tinged, linear finish. Needs a bit more éclat.

    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.
