Perhaps the top value in the appellation is already delicious in your glass due to its creamy-textured black cherries, chocolate, espresso blackberries, and spice. Forward, round, and ready-to-go, give it 30 minutes of air, and it’s even better. Drink from 2024-2037.

Medium-bodied, energetic, savory-edged, currant filled wine with loads of cedar, tobacco leaf, chalky tannins and freshness, from start to finish. It is going to need a year or two to open up and display its full essence. This is a superb vintage for Moulin Riche. Drink from 2024-2038.

Smoky, herbal, coffee, cocoa and dark red fruit aromatics are in the nose. On the palate, the wine is medium-bodied, and focused on its inner core of chocolate-covered dark red fruits. Soft, round and fruit-forward, a year or two of wait time is all that's needed here to round everything out. The wine is a blend of 59% Cabernet Sauvignon, 23% Merlot, 17% Petit Verdot and 1% Cabernet Franc. 89-91 Pts

Just about fully mature, the wine is medium-bodied, soft, elegant, and polished, with a focus on its dark cherry and currant core of fruits with their earthy, tobacco accents. This is showing much better in the bottle than in the barrel. Popped and poured, at best, only a splash decant in needed.

An approachable style of St. Julien with an elegant personality, smooth tannins and a cassis, thyme-filled finish that should offer stylish pleasure while it's young. 87 - 89 Pts
