If you’re a fan of other Moueix estates (like Magdelaine) then you’ll love this wine. A supremely elegant and pretty Bordeaux that is of medium weight. Despite it’s freshness and medium body it packs a fantastic punch of plum, cherry and black currant fruit and a noticeable amount of earthiness. Finishes great. The absence of oak flavors, excessive extraction, and massive tannins is truly refreshing. This wine is for lovers of old school Bordeaux.

I am not a professional wine taster, nor do I have any professional training in the wine trade. I am a wine enthusiast who has spent countless hours tasting wines of many different styles. My palate is not aligned with a single wine critic, and I call all wines "as I taste them". My site is a source of tasting notes and wine recommendations as well as warnings without conflict of interest. You'll just have to figure out how your palate aligns with mine. My palate generally tends to veer towards Old-World wines that put a premium on terroir and lovely balance and finesse, rather than raw power...please keep that in mind as you read my notes.
