2015 Grand Moulin, Cotes de Blaye Rouge

SKU #1371602 90 points Wine Enthusiast

 Wood aging gives this wine's aroma its eucalyptus character. That perfume follows through to the finely structured palate, where oak flavors balance its delicious black plum fruit. It's warm, ripe and stylish. (RV)  (12/2017)

89-90 points James Suckling

 A red with chocolate, dark berry and walnut aromas and flavors. Medium to full body. Straightforward finish.  (4/2016)

This is an amazing value Bordeaux coming from Cotes de Blaye. Situated on the Right Bank, across the river from Pauillac and Margaux, this region is mostly known for good value, easy-drinking wine. The 2015 Grand Moulin, mostly Merlot, is very ripe and full of fleshy tannins. The nose opens with beautiful brambly fruit, praline pie, and bitter chocolate. This would be a great BBQ wine that would impress the family and not hurt the bank.

A right bank wine that is very well priced and ready to enjoy young. Cuvee Viva from Chateau Gigault is a neighbor. Spicy and fruity aromas-a bit savoury too. Very ripe Merlot here gives it a pluminess. Decant and enjoy.
Drink from 2018 to 2025

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.
