Farming Practice

Sustainable

Beautiful deep color. Engaging aromas with strong red fruit character (cherry, raspberry, blackberry). Château du Moulinat is fresh with supple tannins, where the black fruit flavors offer good length on the palate. A pleasant wine to serve with tender red meat.


Vintners Alliance Producers of CHATEAU DU MOULINAT CORDIER CHATEAU DU MOULINAT 2015 Red 2015

James Suckling : 90pts


“I want my wine to be enjoyable at any stage of its life, and all I think about when I elaborate it is the enjoyment by consumers. That is the only thing that matters: Sharing a moment of relaxation with friends while enjoying a bottle. As for style: I love freshness. I am not interested in muscular reds; there must be lightness”. Hélène Soual, owner winemaker.


It was in the 1950s that the Kopp family bought the unassuming winery located on the side of the road between Listrac and the ferry dock to Blaye in the Haut Medoc. 34 Ha were replanted (after being abandoned after phylloxera and WWI) and It is now operated by the Grand-daughter and force of nature Hélène Soual.
During harvest, Hélène tastes and looks for a firm tannins texture in her Cabernet, and velvety fruit in her Merlot. Grapes then go through a vibrating sorting table followed by hand sorting on a conveyor belt.
Everything is cold fermented for one week to soften the grapes and facilitate better extraction. She has stopped pumping over as she believes it dries out the wines and feels strongly about using staves, arguing logically that top quality staves are preferable to ‘middle of the road’ barrels.
The blending is then done blind according to cuvées and Chateau Moulinat is the second wine from highly respected Chateau du Retout.
