Chateau Moulin Riche 2021

A red wine from Saint-Julien seductive in its aromatic richness and elegance

The estate

Château Moulin Riche is located to the north-west of the Saint-Julien appellation. This estate on the left bank of Bordeaux was acquired by the Cuvelier family in 1920, who also owns the Léoville Poyferré and Le Crock châteaux.

The vineyard

Château Moulin Riche overlooks a 20-hectare vineyard in one piece. Made up of Garonne gravel upon sand and clay, this terroir imparts an elegance and a structure that is a typical feature of the appellation. The grape varieties of Château Moulin Riche include Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Petit Verdot.

The wine

Initially the second wine of Château Léoville Poyferré, Château Moulin Riche has been a Grand Vin of Saint-Julien since 2009.

Vinification and ageing

The grapes are harvested by hand in small crates, and are rigorously sorted on the vine, on each bunch and then by optical sorting in order to keep only the best quality grapes. The vinification process is carried out in temperature-controlled stainless steel vats. Alcoholic fermentation is carried out using selected yeasts. Malolactic fermentation is carried out in barrels (25% of which are new). Aged for 15 to 18 months in French oak barrels (25% new, 75% second-fill barrels).

The blend

Château Moulin Riche 2021 comprises a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (54%), Merlot (27%) and Petit Verdot (19%).
