We want to wish you happy holidays and let you know this Saturday we’ll be sampling 2011 Château Moulin Riche Saint-Julien. This is a wine that is dense and velvety, rich on the nose with black fruits. It’s a wine with good concentration and balance, full of life. A wine with chutzpah. A wine to pair with your holiday plate, or a wine that can be enjoyed over many holidays to come.
Château Moulin Riche was effectively the second wine of Château Léoville Poyferré. It has been officially independent since 2009, coming from a specific 50 acre parcel of vines in Saint-Julien, yet the wine is still made with the same great care as its older brother. Sandwiched between Margaux and Pauillac, Saint-Julien offers the best of both worlds, combining the elegance of Margaux with the power of Pauillac. 2011 Moulin Riche is a blend of 71% Cabernet Sauvignon and 29% Merlot.
This is a deal you don’t want to pass-over.
