2009 Moulin du Cadet, St-Emilion

SKU #1312834 92 points James Suckling

 A wine with very attractive berry and spice character and plums with citrus fruit. Full and silky with a lively finish. Better in 2018.  (3/2012)

Wine Spectator

 Quite fleshy and direct, with upfront oomph to the raspberry and blackberry fruit flavors, pushed by dense, but creamy, structure. Best from 2013 through 2019. (JM, Web-2012)

K&L Notes

According to Robert Parker: "Moulin du Cadet is a micro-climat of 12 acres located on the plateau north of St-Emilion. It tends to produce rather fragrant, lighter-style wines lacking depth but displaying attractive bouquets." (Bordeaux Book, 1998)

I can’t get enough of these 2009s-another one has just arrived. We loved this wine in the early ‘70s and it has reappeared. We love it again. Elegant, ripe, plumy and totally satisfying wine to enjoy now.
Drink from 2017 to 2027

Additional Information:

Varietal:

Merlot

- A very popular red grape variety found in the great wines of St. Emilion and Pomerol. It is the most planted variety in Bordeaux, and it has also become an extremely fashionable red in many regions including California. Although it has a reputation to be smooth, and easy to drink when young, Merlot is also capable of producing extremely intense wines as well. It is often used as a blending agent with Cabernet Sauvignon.
Country:

France

- 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.
