Château Tour du Moulin, Terres Rouges, Fronsac, 2016

£17.50

Home of the highly respected consultant winemaker Vincent Dupuch (involved in Ausone, Petrus and l'Eglise Clinet...) where he tries to make the world understand the potential of Fronsac. From the excellent 2015 vintage and the underrated Fronsac appellation, it is a complex, ripe, fruity and full-bodied red. Lovely, warming finish.

 

Matthew Jukes, Wine Journalist:

"Drinking now, smooth, pure, clean, nicely balanced, very accurate and super-long.  These are some of my tasting notes for this delicious claret and so I had to find out more!  It turns out that Château Tour du Moulin is the home of the highly-respected consultant winemaker Vincent Dupuch.  Dupuch has been associated with none other than Ausone, Pétrus and l’Eglise Clinet – Saint-Émilion and Pomerol royalty – and so this is why this wine is so terrific.  Fronsac never tasted so downright regal!  Make an orderly queue."
