About the Producer
Sat next to Chasse Spleen and on one of the highest plateaux in the Médoc we find the vineyard of Château du Moulin. A moulin – or windmill – must be high in altitude or it is useless so this accounts for the wonderful sun exposure.
Owner José Sanfins just happens to be both director of Château Cantenac Brown as
well as winemaking buddy of Eric Boissenot. His day job allows him to analyse the finest equipment and techniques for his own wines – without the need for experimenting with precious few vines. His friendship means that Eric Boissenot – also a winemaker in Lamarque is often on hand to work with José during harvest, sorting and winemaking periods.
This wine is a beautiful deep ruby colour. On the nose we have lots of complexity with
a blend of ripe fruits and spiced notes. A harmonious bouquet with both poise and
power thanks to precise use of oak. The attack is elegant, but well structured. Ripe
tannins are present but not aggressive, and the velvety finish is long and persistent.
91 Points Wine Enthusiast. (2016 Vintage)
"Under the same ownership as Château Cantenac Brown in Margaux, this estate has produced a generous, spicy wine in this great vintage. Its richness is happily balanced by acidity from the black-currant flavors that gives a fresh, succulent aftertaste. Drink from 2022."
"The 2017 Château du Moulin Haut-Médoc delivers aromas of blackberries and ripe cherries, which are woven together with spices, tobacco, violets along with hints of licorice. On the palate this possesses a medium body, and displays a nice balance of fruit and acidity. The finish shows notable length, with cherries and hints of tobacco notes lingering. Allow this another year or so to continue to take shape in bottle. Drink: 2020-2026"
"The 2016 Château du Moulin begins with inviting aromas of raspberries and blueberries woven together with violets, pipe tobacco and hints of sweet oak all developing in the glass. This medium-bodied red is well structured with a velvety texture leading up to the pretty finish. Overall a fine effort which should drink nicely over the next few years."
