Château du Moulin Rouge is located in the commune of Cussac-Fort-Médoc (Gironde). It has belonged to the same family for 13 generations and is now a well-reputed Cru Bourgeois in the Haut-Médoc appellation. Sandwiched between the famous Margaux and Saint Julien appellations, the château benefits from an outstanding terroir. In fact, many trade professionals and knowledgeable wine lovers compare the wines of Château du Moulin Rouge with those of Saint-Julien.
We have driven past this property every year since 1985, but we have only bought the wine three times. The latest buy is this exceptionally good 2015. The elegance of the 2015 vintage especially in Margaux and St Julien shows through on this usually big and tannic wine. Red rose aromas and cassis flavors open up after decanting. Give it some air and enjoy with a pot roast or hambirger. This will cellar well for 10 years plus
Drink from 2020 to 2030
