Critic Notes

The Moulin Saint-Georges is a blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc picked at 35hl/ha and will spend around 18 months in new oak. It has a floral bouquet emanating from the ripe Cabernet Franc, hints of cassis and blackcurrant complemented by subtle crushed stone aromas with aeration. It is well defined and focused, the oak deftly assimilated into the wine. The palate is medium-bodied with a lovely opening of vibrant, red berry fruit with hints of truffle and dried meats. It is very well balanced with svelte tannins and substance from start to finish. This is a supremely accomplished Saint Emilion from Alain Vauthier: feminine and...nubile. <b>Tasted April 2012.Neal Martin, eRobertParker.com</b>

Score: 92-94/100Neal Martin

This wine is polished with lifted dark berry fruit and amazing freshness. There is a wonderful depth to the flavours and a richness in the mid palate. Full bodied, generous wine - while approachable this is a serious wine with velvety tannins. Very long length. A wine from the Vauthier family. <b>AsianPalate.com</b>

Fine fruit and tannins but a rather rapier-edged acidity leaves a hard note. A little too vif but should age. <b>Drink 2017-2026. Decanter.com</b>

Score: 16-/20Decanter

Owned by the Vauthier family, this wine receives much of the same attention as the historic Ausone vineyard. Open-knit with lots of ripe black cherry and black currant fruit as well as crisp acids, a hint of chalky minerality, and a medium-bodied finish, it can be enjoyed over the next 7-8 years.

A little lean but some pretty blueberry and spice character. Medium body, fine tannins and a fresh finish. <b>jamessuckling.com</b>
