Translated: Bordeaux Vineam, a recognized producer of quality wines made with respect for the environment, demonstrates all its know-how in this bottle. Made from a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, Chateau Moulin a Vent will seduce you with its ripe fruit aromas and silky tannins.
French wine can be head-spinningly confusing with its endless list of regions and classifications. Putting all that aside, as we've noted before, the Cru Bourgeois classification on the label is generally a good sign. Awarded annually for wines that meet specific quality levels, we've yet to be disappointed.
The 2014 Chateau Moulin A Vent Moulis En Medoc is still a bit young but nonetheless it begins with very pleasant aromas of dark fruit, spice and violets. The balanced wines tastes of juicy dark fruit, plenty of spice and cedar and excellent notes of licorice. Silky but firm tannins lead into the dry, long finish. Excellent today, this one should continue to develop and get even better over the next 2-3 years.
