Chateau Moulin d'Issan 2014 , Bordeaux Supérieur
Medium-bodied, it noses plum, blackberry and crème de cassis. A full mineral taste from the clay soil. The grapes for Moulin d'Issan come from the historically owned vineyard that abuts the château's driveway: one side is Margaux, the other a bit too close to the Gironde to be called Margaux is classified merely as Bordeaux Supérieur. The blend is 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 50% Merlot and the average vines age are just under 20 years; the wine is aged in barrels that are already over a couple of years old for about a year. It is simple red with substance at the level to kick off this autumn.
