The 2010 Moulin St. Georges has notes of roasted herbs, spices, plums, and blackberries, with expressive yet precise and layered flavours interlaced in a gorgeous intricate pattern. This is a very sophisticated, classy wine of velvety tannins and great clarity and depth. A phenomenal wine with a very long finish. Jeannie Cho Lee MW asianpalate.com

"Tasted at Chateau Ausone, the Moulin St Georges has a ripe blackberry and raspberry scented bouquet with touches of smoke and sous-bois – all very well defined but inward looking at the moment. The palate is medium-bodied with firm, ripe tannins. This is very well balanced with ample freshness and vitality, imbued with a superb crescendo of assertive red fruits on the beautifully controlled finish. Alain Vauthier has fashioned a superb Moulin St Georges that offer drinking pleasure over the next ten or fifteen years. Tasted November 2012."

This is crazy stuff with a super lively acidity and then plenty of fruit and alcohol. Minerally and fruity at the same time. Excellent purity. One of the best ever from here. James Suckling, jamessuckling.com

Lovely mulberry fruit nose which continues onto the palate. Really excellent.
Tiny volume due to coulure. More structured than the '09. Crushed raspberry aroma but with a citrus-like freshness. Medium to full-bodied, smooth texture and tannins and line of acidity that masks the 14.5% alcohol. Long finish. Drink 2017-2028. (17 points) James Lawther, decanter.com
Dark purple. Muscular nose. Very rich though a little dry on the end. Needs time – bit chewy, dry minerals on the end. Jancis Robinson, jancisrobinson.com

Proprietor Alain Vauthier has turned out a solidly constructed wine that is dense purple in color and exhibits subtle smoke, graphite and blue and black fruits in a medium-bodied, relatively linear style. Drink it over the next decade. Feb 2013, www.robertparker.com
