Notes

Moulin St Georges occupies a great position just to the southeast of St Emilion town on clay and limestone soils. The father and daughter team of Alain and Pauline Vauthier at neighbouring Chateau Ausone, tend the vines. Produced from 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc, as usual there is more than a hint of hedgerow fruit, fresh herbs, ferrous notes, tobacco, dried fruits and wildflowers. The palate is packed with notes of creme de mûre - sweet and unctuous, but taut and vibrant. Finishes with plenty of energy and notes of cassis, blackberry and salts.

Notes
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

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.
