FALSTAFF: "Tiefdunkles Rubingranat, violette Reflexe, dezente Randaufhellung. Feine Kräuterwürze, rote Herzkirschen, ein Hauch von Lakritze und Tabak, florale Nuancen sind unterlegt. Saftig, reifes rotes Beerenkonfit, lebendig strukturiert, delikater Stil, mineralisch-salzig im Abgang, ein eleganter Speisenbegleiter."
JAMES SUCKLING: "Fresh and framed with a juiciness but also a coolness and brightness. Medium to full body. Very balanced. Well done. Lower pH at 3.52. 80% merlot and 20% cabernet franc."
WEINWISSER: "Verspieltes Bouquet, ein Strauß Veilchen und Flieder, frische Alpenheidelbeere, Lakritze und Blaubeerjoghurt. Am vielschichtigen Gaumen mit seidiger Textur, tänzerischer Rasse, engmaschigem Tanninkorsett, straff ausgerichtet mit perfekt trainiertem Körper. Im gebündelten aromatischen Finale schwarzbeerige Konturen, Pflaumenhaut und mehlige Adstringenz. So gut wie 2018! 2028 – 2045."
JEB DUNNUCK: "Rocking Merlot notes of ripe black cherries, currants, smoked tobacco, and melted chocolate all emerge from the 2022 Château Moulin Saint Georges, a ripe, full-bodied, opulent, seamless 2020 based on 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc. It has the density and structure of the vintage and will have 15-20 years of overall longevity."
DECANTER: "Milk chocolate and bramble berry fruits, smells quite sun kissed. Supple and nicely full in the mouth, tannins have a soft chew to them which gives texture and weight in the mouth and this feels like it has good persistence from start to finish. Acidity is on the high side but just about balances the ripe, concentrated fruit. You get the density from the clay here giving a more full palate, still with some tension and direction and slight mineral edges to the tannins. An enjoyable and very drinkable wine with freshness and a good dose of fruit concentration. Mineral tang on the finish, crushed stones and graphite elements give an appealing end, though it's also marked a little by a sense of alcohol. 3.72pH. Harvest 19-20 September for Merlot, 26 September for Cabernet Franc."
LISA PERROTTI-BROWN: „A blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc, the 2022 Moulin Saint-Georges has a deep garnet-purple color. It bursts with bombastic scents of juicy black plums, blueberry pie, and warm cassis, leading to touches of cedar chest, menthol, and lavender. Big, rich, and full-bodied in the mouth, the palate is completely coated with black and blue fruits, supported by firm, velvety tannins, finishing long and decadent. It will need some time to come round, but promises to be a blockbuster!"
THE WINE CELLAR INSIDER: "Initially you notice the toasty oak before moving to the incense, spice, flowers, and smoked plums in the nose. On the palate, the wine is creamy, supple, fresh and polished, leaving you with the sensation of lushness on the palate that carries through to the finish. 80% percent Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc create the blend. 14.5 ABV%, 3.52 Ph. Drink from 2026-2042."
THE WINE ADVOCATE: "Unwinding in the glass with aromas of dark berries, cherries, violets and creamy new oak, the 2022 Moulin St Georges is medium to full-bodied, ample and fleshy, with powdery tannins and a taut, chalky profile. It should flesh out further with additional élevage."
