2016 Moulin du Cadet, St-Emilion (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1299388 92-93 points James Suckling

 Tight and focused with linear tannins and beautiful fruit. Medium to full body and a fresh finish. Solid. Better than the 2015.  (4/2017)

88-90 points Vinous

 The 2016 Moulin du Cadet is a rich, boisterous wine. Even so, its midweight structure suggests that it is best enjoyed over the near and medium term, while the dark fruit flavors remain vibrant. Black cherry, chocolate and sweet French oak create a flamboyant flavor profile. (AG)  (4/2017)


 A little closed and sombre compared to some, this is 100% Merlot from 2.88ha, producing a wine with a punch of powerful black cherry, liquorice and dark chocolate. (JA)  (4/2017)

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.
