This rare unclassified growth from Saint-Julien has all of the elegance you would expect, and it balances firm tannins with a classic black-currant flavor. It has dark, structured tannins, with layers of wood and acidity on the fragrant finish. Keep this for many years.
Darkly colored wine, with flavors as rich as the color. It has opulent new wood and black plum fruit flavors, the acidity offering a succulent aspect as well as dense tannins and ripe power. It does need aging, but could well develop quickly.
One of the few properties in Saint-Julien that is not a cru classé, Moulin de la Rose does have all the elegant, structured character of the vintage. The tannins are firm, suggesting good long-term aging prospects.
90-92 Barrel sample. A finely structured wine, its tannins firm but generous. It has some dark characters, black plums and a solid texture, but it is also fired with super-rich fruit.
