Château Moulin Riche

Bordeaux, bordeaux France

Until 2009, Château Moulin Riche was the second wine of Château Léoville Poyferré. It was bought alongside Léoville Poyferré in 1920 by the Cuvelier family, who still own both properties today.

Château Moulin Riche has 22 hectares in Saint-Julien planted with Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Petit Verdot. The vines are on average 25 years old and are grown sustainably on gravel and sandy soils. The grapes are harvested by hand into small crates and then sorted twice: once by hand on a table in the vineyard and then again at the cellar, using a state of the art optical sorting machine. This ensures only perfectly ripe and healthy grapes become wine.

Each plot is harvested and kept separately and fermented in temperature-controlled stainless steel vats. After blending the wine is put into French oak barrels, 70% new, for 18 - 20 months. The 'M de Moulin Riche' is the second wine of Château Moulin Riche, and is meant for earlier drinking. It is made with the same care, but is aged for six months in two-year-old French oak barrels and then another six months in stainless steel vats. It is a blend of 87% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot, 2% Petit Verdot and 1% Cabernet Franc. It is lively and fruity with a classic Bordeaux nose of black fruits and cedar with brisk acidity and structured tannins.
