Château Moutin Rouge AOC Graves, 2012


Grape Variety

Cabernet Sauvignon

The vines planted over fifty years ago benefit from the deep gravelly soils to produce rich and concentrated grapes. The 2012 is amazingly fresh given its seven years of age. It is youthful and classy with mellow ripe fruit aromas, raspberry jam, dark fruit and sponge cake all stating a presence. It is elegant with a pure linear structure and good depth, finishing on flavours of juicy red fruits, red cherries, blackcurrants and vanilla. Jean-Christophe carried out a strict selection of grapes prior to fermenting in tank with daily pump overs and an extended maceration on skins. The wine was subsequently matured in French oak barrels using 50% new and 50% one-year-old for 24 months.
