Chateau Moulin de La Rose owes its name to an 18th century mill on the site where the château is now located. Situated in the midst of the Grands Crus Classes of Saint-Julien, the Moulin de La Rose reveals one of the most beautiful expressions of this terroir.
The Chateau Moulin de la Rose vineyard covers an area of 5.15 hectares. Aged 30 years on average, the vines are planted in Garonne gravel.
While the country was confined, the vine was very active in its vegetative development. The particularly dry summer had no negative impact on the vineyard. The fruit, harvested at full maturity, showed a beautiful aromatic concentration, a bright color and silky tannins. Of very high quality, this 2020 vintage is in line with the 2018 and 2019 vintages.
The winemaking and aging
Harvested manually, the grapes are sorted in the vineyard before being vinified in temperature-controlled stainless steel vats. Vatting for around 3 weeks. Aging in barrels (30% new oak) lasts 20 months, with 7 rackings.
The Chateau Moulin de La Rose 2020 is made from a blend of cabernet sauvignon (65%) and merlot (35%).
The wine displays a beautifully deep color.
The powerful nose combines freshness fragrances of ripe black fruits, notes of violet and licorice.
The generous palate seduces with its tannic structure, as well as its power, supported by a beautiful freshness and a smooth minerality.
