A rich, dense red with layers of ripe tannins and beautiful fruit. It’s full and flavorful. So balanced. Best ever? Rating: 93-94 James Suckling, www.jamessuckling.com (May 2020)

The 2019 Moulin Haut-Laroque sports a deep garnet-purple color and notes of warm black plums, cedar chest, aniseed and Black Forest cake with hints of clove oil and tilled soil. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is generously fruited with loads of black fruit and oak-inspired flavors, framed by grainy tannins and oodles of freshness, finishing spicy.

The 2019 Moulin Haut-Laroque has a very pure bouquet with blueberry, blackberry, vanilla and subtle violet aromas. The oak is nicely integrated. The palate is well balanced with supple tannins, not amazingly complex but fresh with a lovely liquorice-tinged finish that lingers nicely. Promising.

Château Moulin Haut Laroque
The Château Moulin Haut Laroque vineyard has been producing wine since 1890. There are just over 16 hectares in production, on the plateaus and hillsides of Fronsac. It is planted between 5500 and 6700 vines per hectare, with 65% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 5% (100 year old) Malbec, with lots of old vines - and an average vine age of 55 years old. Jean-Noël Hervé has handed over to his son Thomas a vineyard at the top of its appellation, which, as Robert Parker has written 'seems never to disappoint'. The harvest is manual, picked into small crates for transport to the modern winery, with dual sorting tables and total de-stemming. The winery uses gravity - the only pumps ever used are peristaltic. The wine is aged for 18 months in barrel, with 35% new wood. The wine has a distinctive character of limestone soils, with a bracing structure and firm definition framing a fruit which concentrated and expressive. A tannic frame is part of what makes this wine such a joy to drink, especially with quite hearty food.
