Rocking amounts of red and black currants, chalky minerality, violets, camphor, new leather, and violets emerge from the 2018 Château Moulin Du Cadet, a rich, medium to full-bodied, concentrated, beautifully balanced Saint-Emilion. With ripe tannins, plenty of mid-palate depth, and a great finish, this is another remarkable wine from the Lefévère family that's well worth snatching up. The wine is 100% Merlot brought up in 80% new French oak. It's going to benefit from 4-5 years of bottle age and will keep for 15+.
Sweet-berry, coffee and mushroom aromas follow through to a full body with chewy tannins and a juicy finish. Needs time to soften. Try after 2024.
From an up-and-coming estate this has great fruit, rich tannins and lots of fine acidity. The wine is dark and concentrated. (RV)
The 2018 Moulin du Cadet is 100% Merlot from a tiny vineyard measuring just under three hectares. Powerful, dense and explosive, the 2018 possesses tremendous intensity from the outset. Blackberry jam, spice, wild flowers, menthol, licorice and chocolate race out of the glass as this sumptuous Saint-Émilion shows off its personality and sheer allure, both of which it has in spades. Tasted two times. (AG)
This 2.85-hectare vineyard was acquired by the Lefévère family in 2015, owners of the nearby Sansonnet and Soutard Cadet. The 100% Merlot vines have an average age of 35 years and are planted at a density of 6,000 vines per hectare. The soil is a mix of fine clay and limestone. From the lieu-dit Le Cadet, the deep purple-black colored 2018 Moulin du Cadet gives up bold plum preserves, black cherry compote and baked blueberry scents with touches of tar, chargrill, menthol and scorched earth. Full, rich and seductive, it has a spicy undercurrent and great freshness, finishing soft and seductive. (LPB)
Here we have a pretty modern take on St-Emilion with a layer of sweet black cherry and a fresh core underneath. It has a generosity to it that speaks to its 100% Merlot composition and a powerful depth to the fruit, with pâtisserie brioche notes through the finish. A yield of 45hl/ha, 80% new oak. (JA)
