2015 Moulin du Cadet, St-Èmilion (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1254332 91 points James Suckling

 A chewy and flavorful red with lots of fruit and hot-stone character. Full body, ripe tannins and a flavorful finish. Needs time to open. Better in 2020.  (2/2018)

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 Medium garnet-purple in color, the 2015 Moulin du Cadet gives up earthy notes of forest floor, fungi and tilled soil with a core of warm plums and dried Provence herbs. Medium to full-bodied with soft, approachable tannins and an understated savory character, it finishes with good persistence. (LPB)  (2/2018)


 New ownership this year (same as Sansonnet). Stylistically unchanged – fine, fresh, linear – but a touch more precision. Tannins finely honed. (JL)  (4/2016)

One of my top ten values of the vintage under $30 retail. I remember buying 5 cases of their 1970 in 1974--it was delicious and $5. Well, the 2015 is quite good also. You might want to try the 2005 now in stock, but this wine is much better. This wine is packed with blackberry aromas and flavors--so lush and forward you could drink it tonight! Lovely wine in perfect balance with acidity under all that fruit.
Drink from 2018 to 2028

Additional Information:



- 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.


- 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.
