Château Moulin de Mallet
AOC Bordeaux Red
Deep ruby red in colour. The expressive nose is redolent of ripe fruit (blackcurrant, cherry). Beautifully rounded palate with plenty of finesse, very fruit forward and with silky tannins.
Ready to drink from 2015, but can be laid down for several years.
Vat-fermented and vat-aged, this densely garnet coloured wine displays a whole array of fresh, red and black fruit aromas (blackcurrant, blackberry and cherry). The same generosity is found on the palate, with supple, chewy extract over smooth, elegant, discreet tannins. Crafted from fully ripened grapes, this Grand Vin de Bordeaux has drawn the full potential from this exceptional terroir overlooking the Dordogne opposite Saint-Emilion.
Ready to drink from 2017, but can be laid down for several years.
This Moulin de Mallet 2016 owes its quality to the painstaking work undertaken in the vineyard in recent years (short pruning, managed grass cover, restricted yields, green harvesting, integrated pest control), as well as the vinification techniques aimed at fostering extraction of the fruit and colour without too much tannin. The results are especially telling in the 2009 vintage, with its near-black red colour and ruby tints. The bouquet is generous, displaying an array of red and black fruit aromas (blackcurrant, blackberry and cherry). The same harmony is discernible on the palate, with its supple, fleshy extract over a silky, velvety tannic base. A decidedly fine achievement which confirms the excellence of this leading cru of the appellation!
