Tasting Notes

The 2020 Moulin Saint-Georges was picked 18 and 21 September for the Merlot and on 1 October for the Cabernet Franc, matured for 18 months in barrel. This has an expressive bouquet, very floral with rose petal and iris flower, blueberry and blackberry fruit bursting from the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with succulent, ripe tannins, fleshy and with ample substance on the finish that exerts a gentle grip, a touch of salinity on the aftertaste. Very fine. 2027 - 2048

Neal Martin, vinous.com, June 2021

So full of deeply-drawn berry fruit, fresh and juicy with touches of liquorice bud and rosemary, thirst quenching and yet thirst inducing in that amazing way that limestone can both refresh and make you thirst for more at the same time. An excellent Moulin St Georges, and such a step up from the more sandy soils that you find at Fonbel and the two Simard estates in this year's range of Vauthier-owned wines that this alone can help you understand how to navigate 2020.

85% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Franc. Cask sample.
Slightly awkward at the moment with the oak present (prise de bois) but fresh, firm and structured with good fruit concentration. Should knit together in time. (JL)

(85% M, 15% CF)
Very nice nose, dense, fragrant, raspberry-sweet, and lightly oak-vanillary; fullish, moderate in concentration (as usual), fresh to lively in acidity; a sweetly ripe fruit, gently fleshy in texture, subtly mineral, an almost lemony fresh definition, making this particularly attractive in the year where, even if fresh, so much is “supple”; a particularly good juicy core for Moulin St-Georges; long and even and classy, with lovely fruit-fragrant persistence. A typical refined, classic expression of good mid-rank St-Emilion. A great success. 2028–45+.
