Variety: Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot
30km north of the city of Bordeaux, nestled in the sand and gravel soils of Margaux are the lovingly tended vineyards of Ch. Moulin de Tricot. In this fabled land of ice cream castle Chateaux, 30-year-old vines (on average) are snugly spaced and never feel the touch of pesticides. Low yield vines mean better grapes here in Bordeaux, as anywhere, and once hand-harvested the fruit is destemmed and fermented in steel before coming to rest in older oak barrels before bottling. A true left-bank Margaux, primarily Cabernet Sauvignon with at least 25% Merlot, Moulin de Tricot delivers a nose of cedar and violets, and on the palette ripe dark fruit, sweet tobacco, dusty tannins and a long, almost mysterious finish that begs for just one more glass.
