Château Moulin de Gauriac

Château Moulin de Gauriac, which has been handed down from father to son, has achieved recognition with Jean Blanc. Now aged ninety, he is the current owner and has entrusted us with managing it as tenants. On returning from the war he devoted himself to the vineyard and winemaking, founded the Gauriac vinification cooperative, progressively acquired plots of vines and expanded his father’s vineyard, which went from 1.5 hectares in 1950 to a little more than 10 hectares today. We are very proud to be following in his footsteps since 2014.

The name of Château Moulin de Gauriac comes from the fact that there is a mill near our vineyard.

An intense crimson in colour. The nose evokes a powerful terroir in which the grapes grow to full maturity. The attack in the mouth is frank with pronounced tannins; the palate then opens up with aromas of juicy, freshly picked strawberries. The finish brings notes of toast and butter.

Grilled white meats
