Already a wine to drink now but by 2028, you will start seeing its potential and by the 30s, it will be singing. Such a great potential. It will be worth the wait.
Colour: Deep Red
Nose: Sandy tannin, “refined” describes this wine best. Cool soil, red and blue flowers. Mixture of red and blue fruits as well. A complex wine. Sightly candied but in a good way. Licorice, red cherry, cotton candy as well, there is a umami sensation to the back palate.
Palate: There is concentration, polish and freshness. But make no mistake, it’s the sexy, multi-layered, velvet textured finish that is the highlight of the wine.
Grape Varieties: 91% Merlot, 7% Cabernet Franc, 2% Petit Verdot
History of Moueix
Internationally renowned, Établissements Jean-Pierre Moueix has become a hallmark for the top wines of Bordeaux. The company is the largest wine merchant on the Right Bank, distributing fine wines from Bordeaux and California worldwide. Family run since 1937, they are also the owner and producer of several prestigious crus, including Château La Fleur-Pétrus, Château Trotanoy, and Château Hosanna in Pomerol; Château Bélair-Monange Premier Grand Cru Classé in Saint-Émilion; and, in Napa Valley, California, Dominus Estate and Ulysses.
Jean-Pierre Moueix was born in 1913, moved to Saint-Émilion in 1929. At the time, the wines of Pomerol and Saint-Émilion were not yet widely recognized. Jean-Pierre Moueix, a visionary, foresaw great potential both in the Merlot grape and in its ability to age when grown in the best terroirs of his adopted region.
His sons and now his grandson, Edouard Moueix run the company together with their dedicated staff to produce, distribute, and promote an exceptional selection of over 200 wines.
