Château Le Grand Moulin

I love wines for their delicacy and complexity and I’m passionate about our Right Bank. In 1980 I therefore had not the slightest hesitation in taking over the helm of the estate created by my great-grandfather in 1904, and was proud to do so. When I took on the estate it had also started to grow other crops, and the vines covered only 7 hectares. I returned it to its original purpose and restructured, modernised and extended it; today it covers 81 hectares. I’m sensitive to environmental issues and I also own Château Les Aubiers which has 25 hectares of vines, organically farmed since 2011.

The name of the Château comes from a locality called Grand Moulin.

Bright and a beautiful, fairly pale gold in colour. The nose is typical of Sauvignon, and marked by citrus notes. The supple, beautifully fresh palate leads to magnificent aromatic maturity in the finish. This wine is fresh yet generous, with the complexity of very ripe Sauvignon.

Aged in 225 litre French oak barrels (one third new barrels) without racking, in an anaerobic environment to preserve a maximum of fruit.

This blend includes Merlot and two Cabernets. Deep purple in colour. Pleasant aromas of confit dark fruit with caramelised, spicy notes. The palate is elegant, underpinned by pronounced yet entirely unaggressive tannins that emphasise a long, complex finish.
