CHÂTEAU MOULIN DES RICHARDS

Wine has been a passion for my family since 1772. Our ancestors were winegrowers and grew some of the historical plots of vines. In 1956, my grand-father Gilbert Dupuy and grand-mother Huguette Gautrat got married and combined their vineyards. In 1998, my father Joël Dupuy took over and became the winery’s manager. He expanded and modernised the vineyard. Since 2010, it is my turn to perpetuate the wine passion of our family by bringing some new ideas coming from my experiences abroad.

CHÂTEAU MOULIN DES RICHARDS

Technical informations

Location : Mombrier
Vineyard surface : 70 hectares
Soils : Clay-limestone soils with some silt and gravel - Subsoil of limestone one or two meters deep - 40-meter high - East-west exposure - 30-year-old vines
Blend of grape variety : 80 % Merlot, 10 % Cabernet Sauvignon, 10 % Cabernet Franc
Wine-making process :

Mechanical and sorted harvest at the end of september. Gentle work with the grapes. Temperature-control to respect the fruit and secure fermentation. Limitation of oxygen exposure. Ageing in concrete vats softened with wood.

Tasting comments :

A dark red color, almost black. The nose opens with notes of grilled almond and hazelnut. Intense, rich palate, proper sweetness, ample in the mouth with some wild tannins which escape from the general roundness. An excellent long finish.

Wine pairings :

Shoulder of lamb
