The 2009 is perhaps not an absolute benchmark due to its 100 point previous score (now 98) but this price range seems very sensible for such a monolithic wine. It will be up to £400 quite rapidly and may reach £750 in 10 years.L&S (May 2021)

The low yields in St Julien in 2020 could offer the same high score, but I'd really like to see a bit of a wind back to Pichon levels. Like a stuck record, I still it's good value when compared to global top Bordeaux blends, but it's just not quite good value enough when compared to the high standards it has previously set.

Crushed flowers, bright red-toned fruit, mint, rose petal and cedar are all very nicely lifted. Firm, but precise tannins lend energy and proportion. The Petit Lion is a blend of young vine Cabernet and old-vine Merlot from Las Cases. Drinking range: 2025 - 2040 Rating: 92-94 Antonio Galloni, www.vinous.com (Jun 2021)

Jancis Robinson gave it her wine of the vintage, Parker was 1 point from perfect (with a + sign) and Martin liked it a lot (96-98) but not as much as the 2016. A favourable in bottle score will put it in triple digits, but probably not vastly over in the long run. I'd like to see a pretty good drop in price for the 2020, even if the quality is symmetrical.

2020 CHÂTEAU MOULIN RICHE Saint Julien

Release date: 11/6/2021

This is an expressive vintage for Moulin Riche with a robust, full-frontal attack of juicy Cabernet coupled with a decent sprinkling of tannin which certainly pricks the palate with its raw energy. This is an expressive vintage for Moulin Riche with a robust, full-frontal attack of juicy Cabernet coupled with a decent sprinkling of tannin which certainly pricks the palate with its raw energy. The oak is prominent on the nose but more settled on the palate and there is more than enough gras to leave a nice, long aftertaste here. With finely sooty tannins and a lovely rebound of black cherries and dark chocolate on the finish, this is an impressive wine and one which will age like clockwork. As always, there are more than enough Saint-Julien traits here to keep fans of this commune happy and it has an LP signature running the length of the palate, too, so purists will be impressed, too.

So much has been done to revamp the Chateau and vineyards, with this being the first vintage to truly reap the rewards. I think going forward, if they ever get scored, we'll be seeing wine at the 95+ point level. Low yields in St Julien this year will probably only contribute to quality.L&S (May 2021)

Owner François-Xavier Maroteaux explained, as we tasted over zoom, how wonderfully aromatic the Merlot was for them - unusual but very welcome - and it has worked well in their ‘home signature’ which combines pure fruit, freshness and balance. The wine has all of this - remaining really well poised and loaded with lifted fruit. All hedgerows and berries and a lovely St Julien feel. Not a heavy-weight but totally charming. In the vintage this stands out for its lighter touch and pretty poise. Very good.
