The second wine of the domaine
The Moulin Rose pays homage to the iconic Malescasse windmill, which was renovated this year. This blend comes from plots close to the windmill, and its balance and elegance give it a distinctively Médoc style. It also has a charm and a silky texture which make it immediately accessible.
A remarkable year, notable for a superb balance. The wines are dense, well-ripened and fresh – in short, they are complete and harmonious.
Varieties and vinification
55% Merlot, 40% Cabernet-Sauvignon, 5% Petit-Verdot. Fermentation in stainless steel vats at between 26° and 28°, with frequent pumping-over. Vatting for 4 weeks. Malolactic fermentation in vats. Ageing of 10 months in oak.
With its purple garnet colour, the 2015 opens with an immediate flurry of small red and black fruits: raspberry, blackcurrant, blackberry and elderberry emerge one after another against a lightly mentholated backdrop. Notes of liquorice and spices complete the charming and elegant aromatic profile. The ripe, soft palate immediately reveals great fullness and maturity on a framework of soft tannins. It will provide pleasurable drinking right now.
Can age another 6 years or more.
