2018 Moulin du Cadet, St-Emilion (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1414893 93-95 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark This tiny estate was purchased by the Lefévère family in 2015, who are also the owners of the nearby grands cru classés, Sansonnet and Soutard Cadet. Planted all to Merlot, the 2018 Château Moulin du Cadet is a selection of 75% of the total production and is aging in 80% new French oak. It’s certainly the finest vintage I’ve tasted, offering beautiful notes of blue fruits, spice, and graphite, with a kiss of minerality. Medium to full-bodied, beautifully fresh and focused, with plenty of background oak, it has a modern style yet also classic Saint-Émilion character. Inner quote mark (5/2019)

93-94 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark A medium-bodied and juicy red with dark berries, volcanic salt and hints of seaweed. Firm tannins. Vivid and focused. Pure Merlot. Inner quote mark (3/2019)

90-93 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2018 Moulin du Cadet is 100% Merlot from a tiny vineyard measuring just under three hectares. Powerful, dense and explosive, the 2018 possesses tremendous intensity from the outset. Blackberry jam, spice, wild flowers, menthol, licorice and chocolate race out of the glass as this sumptuous Saint-Émilion shows off its personality and sheer allure, both of which it has in spades. Tasted two times. (AG) Inner quote mark (4/2019)

92 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark From an up-and-coming estate this has great fruit, rich tannins and lots of fine acidity. The wine is dark and concentrated. (RV) Inner quote mark (4/2019)

90-92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark This 2.85-hectare vineyard was acquired by the Lefévère family in 2015, owners of the nearby Sansonnet and Soutard Cadet. The 100% Merlot vines have an average age of 35 years and are planted at a density of 6,000 vines per hectare. The soil is a mix of fine clay and limestone. From the lieu-dit Le Cadet, the deep purple-black colored 2018 Moulin du Cadet gives up bold plum preserves, black cherry compote and baked blueberry scents with touches of tar, chargrill, menthol and scorched earth. Full, rich and seductive, it has a spicy undercurrent and great freshness, finishing soft and seductive. (LPB) Inner quote mark (4/2019)
