Chateau Moulin du Cadet 2020
Château Moulin du Cadet is ideally situated on the Cadet hill at the entrance to Saint-Emilion. This 2.85-hectare (7.04-acre) Cru Classé exploits clayey limestone soils on the Saint-Emilion plateau with Merlot uniquely. Moulin du Cadet wines have always been historically sought after, first winning a gold medal at the Paris universal exhibition in 1867. The wines produced display no heaviness and are elegant with tannins that are always very silky.
Flowers, cherries, plums, and espresso beans make up the perfume. The wine is deep, dark, and lushly textured, with a rich, deep, concentrated, polished finish ending with chalky tannins, and layers of sweet, chocolate-enriched plums, with toasty oak. Drink from 2024-2042.
