|Cab Sauv, Cab Franc, Merlot
|Fronsac & Canon Fronsac
Château Tour du Moulin is an old estate, revived in 1987 by Josette Dupuch and her son Vincent. Vincent is a highly respected consultant oenologist who is well known for working at some of the biggest name Right Bank estates. (He's too discreet to say but it is suggested he is involved at Ausone and Petrus amongst others!) This was an absolute joy and stood out in quite a long line up of options at a recent tasting. Real freshness and purity, elegant with great delivery of plum and cassis fruit, complex tobacco and tea notes. It was the finesse and supple line of this wine that really wowed us. L&S (Jul 2023)

Château Tour du Moulin
Château Tour du Moulin is an old estate, revived in 1987 by Josette Dupuch and her son Vincent. Vincent is a highly respected consultant oenologist who is well known for working at some of the biggest name Right Bank estates. (He's too discreet to say but it is suggested he is involved at Ausone and Petrus amongst others!) He is certainly a great friend of winemaker Denis Durantou of L'Eglise Clinet fame. At his 'home' estate Vincent is passionate about restoring Fronsac to the high acclaim it historically held. Since taking over the original 1 hectare property in 1987 he has been buying up the best plots of vines that he can find and his 28 different parcels now add up to 8.5 Hectares. All on a diverse array of soil types. He likes to think that terroir is paramount and that wines are really made in the vineyards, so place is crucial and this is a brilliant site. Techniques such as severe pruning, bud thinning, leaf thinning and green harvesting are all used to maximise the quality of the fruit he's growing and the results here are electric.
