Château Moulin de Mallet

AOC Bordeaux Red

Family-owned since 1898, the vineyard was gradually expanded and became the principal activity of the Couderc family in 1985. High up on the plateau de Pujols, a rocky outcrop overlooking the Dordogne Valley and facing the slopes of Saint Emilion, are the constructions of five successive generations. The entire estate has been modernised and the vineyard is run with passion and painstaking care by Mr Couderc senior, aided, since 1997, by his son Julien, a qualified viticulturist and oenologist.

    TASTING NOTES

    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!

    AGEING

    Ready for drinking from 2017; can be laid down for several years.

    This densely coloured, garnet-hued wine displays a whole array of fresh, red and black fruit aromas (blackcurrant, blackberry and cherry). The same harmony is discernible on the palate – supple, chewy extract on a subtle tannic base! An easy-to-drink Bordeaux that can be enjoyed even in its youth, from 2018
