Château Moulin des Richards Cuvée Prestige
AOC Côtes de Bourg Red
This wonderful little estate situated in Mombrier came into existence thanks to a passion nurtured by Gilbert Dupuy who, since 1956, has devoted all his energy to establishing the cru. He gradually purchased additional plots, expanding the vineyard little by little, restored the family buildings and installed modern winery facilities. His son Joël took over the estate in 1998. He has carried on his father’s work with the same passion and determination, investing in a new, more functional barrel cellar and striving to establish a reputation for his vineyard and his wines. In doing so, he is carrying on the family tradition.
This 2011 is a beguilingly intense ruby red with deep purple tints. The generous, expressive nose exudes red fruit and spices. Supple, soft and fruit-forward on the attack, the palate is structured by smooth tannins that supply fine length. A decidedly excellent achievement in this renowned terroir of Côtes-de-Bourg.
