2020 Château Moulin Haut-Laroque  (Fronsac) 92

The first thing you notice is the strong floral bouquet followed by incense, espresso bean, spice and an array of plums on the nose. Medium-bodied, soft, round, elegant and fresh, the wine finishes with silky textured black plums. This should deliver pleasure for at least 12-15 years. 91-93 Pts

Flowers, crushed rock, licorice, espresso, forest floor and ripe red pit fruit aromas hit the mark. Supple and polished, with layers of silky textured red fruits and cocoa that work to deliver a long endnote, this is already such a treat to taste. And it sells for a song! 92 Points

2017 Château Moulin Haut-Laroque  (Fronsac) 91

Smoke, espresso, licorice and cherry notes on the nose move right through to the fresh, soft, round, sweet and fruity finish. You can enjoy this young but a few years will allow the oak to better integrate with the wine. 91 Points

Showing deep color, the wine is fresh, soft and round, with a black cherry filled personality. 88 Points

This really put on weight and added complexity during the aging. The wine, produced from a blend of 65% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Malbec easily serves up an earthy espresso driven, cherry and licorice personality with a soft, smooth finish. Give it 2-3 years to continue filling out. 89 Points

2009 Château Moulin Haut-Laroque  (Fronsac) 90

Flashy, forward and already fun to drink, the wine pops with licorice, black cherries and earth. Deeply colored, lushly textured and open, this should be able to age, as well as offer pleasure in its youth. Savvy shoppers should be able to find this Bordeaux value wine for under $30. 90 Points

2008 Château Moulin Haut-Laroque  (Fronsac) 88

Licorice, sweet red and black fruit, spice and stone scents lead to a round, medium bodied wine that is already showing well. From a blend of 65% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Malbec, I'd drink this fun wine over the next 5-8 years. 88 Points
