Red Table Wine
H. Cuvelier & Fils
For many years, Château Moulin Riche had been unofficially known as the “little brother” of Château Léoville Poyferré, as its vines were part of the original estate when purchased by the Cuvelier family in 1920. In 2009, it claimed its independence as a ‘grand vin’ in its own right.
Located in the northwest of the Saint-Julien appellation, the grapes are sourced from 20-hectares of a single block, which has been extensively replanted with a preference for Cabernet Sauvignon. This is a Bordeaux that drinks beautifully now and through the next decade.
“A tangy and fresh red with dark berries, such as blueberries and raspberries. Medium-bodied, firm and bright with lively tannins that give this lift and energy.” 92-93 points, James Suckling, April 2019
“The 2018 Moulin Riche is a dark, sensual beauty. Blackberry, chocolate, spice, new leather and menthol all meld together effortlessly. Time in the glass brings out pretty floral overtones along with redder tonalities of fruit. This is an especially unctuous, racy style. There is no arguing with the wine’s balance or sheer appeal. The 2018 can be enjoyed now and for another 15 years or so, maybe more.” 92 points, Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media, March 2021
“An extremely fruit-forward wine with plenty of plum, raspberry and damson, this is a lovely Moulin Riche full of exuberant, gourmet touches, reflecting the house style yet maintaining the freshness you want from the appellation. The harvest took three weeks instead of the usual 10 days, as they allowed each plot to really get to the ripeness that they wanted. Yield of 43l/ha. 3.7pH. 80IPT. 1% Cabernet Franc completes the blend.” 91 points, Jane Anson, Decanter, April 2019
