2010 Moulin Riche, St-Julien

SKU #1309416 92 points James Suckling

 Aromas of blueberries and blackberries and spices follow through to a full body, with silky tannins and a pretty finish. Very refined and delicious. Give it at least three to four years. Try in 2016.  (2/2013)

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 Tasted blind at the Southwold Bordeaux 2010 tasting. The Chateau Moulin Riche 2010 is laden with plenty of ripe red cherries, boysenberry and violet petal scents on the nose with moderate definition. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannins. It is very cohesive with succulent ripe black fruit layering the rounded finish. This is a thoroughly respectable Moulin Riche. (NM-Wine Journal)  (3/2014)

90 points Wine Spectator

 This is inviting, with warm cocoa, steeped blueberry and blackberry fruit notes, featuring a juicy bolt of fig pâte de fruit and a long, dark, charcoal-filled finish that is nearly accessible now. Best from 2014 through 2024. (JM)  (3/2013)

Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

 Good bright, deep ruby-red. Very dark aromas of cassis and spices show a medicinal reserve. Then supple and stylish on the palate, with good early appeal to the flavors of dark berries, chocolate, mocha, smoke and leather. Finishes with dusty, chalky tannins and good length. A very good vintage for this wine, which is made by Chateau Leoville-Poyferre from a vineyard located next to Chateau Talbot. (ST)  (7/2013)

Additional Information:


Cabernet Sauvignon and Blends

- Cabernet Sauvignon has come a long way from its role as a blending varietal, however dominant, in the wines of Bordeaux. Today it is the most planted red varietal in the world. Identified as a descendent of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc, the late-ripening Cabernet Sauvignon needs to be planted in warmer climates to fully ripen. Its small berries can easily be identified for their distinctive blue color, thick skins and high tannins. And while the varietal has its own definitive characteristics: green pepper-like aromas and black currant flavors among them, it is perhaps most prized for its ability to convey terroir, vintage and winemaking. A relatively new varietal, Cabernet Sauvignon started making inroads into the wines of the M├ędoc and Graves in the late-18th century. Today it is also dominant in the up-and-coming Entre-Deux-Mers region of Bordeaux and can also be found in Southwest France. It is the companion varietal to Sangiovese in Italy's Super Tuscans and is planted all over Europe, stretching to lesser-known winegrowing regions like Russia and Lebanon. In the Americas Cabernet Sauvignon has found champions in every nook and cranny of California and among winemakers in Washington, where it complements plantings of Merlot. In South America, Cab thrives in Chile, but can also be found in smaller amounts in Argentina and even in Mexico.


- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.

Specific Appellation:

Saint Julien

- St. Julien, the smallest of the four famous appellations of the Haut Medoc, is known for highly extracted, finely structured, Cabernet-based reds. It is nestled between Pauillac to the north and Margaux to the south. Like St. Estephe, there are no first growths in this area. Leoville-las-Cases, Leoville Poyferre, Leoville Barton, Ducru Beaucaillou, and Gruard Larose are the second-growths of St. Julien followed by Lagrange which is the only third-growth. Beychevelle, Branaire Ducru, St. Pierre, and Talbot, which are all fourth-growth wines, round out the grand cru classe chateaux. In the last several vintages, wineries from this appellation have been out-performing their traditional rankings making many of the wines from this region some of the best values in red wine today.
