Chateau La Tour du Moulin - Fronsac 2015
Region: Fronsac - Bordeaux Right Bank
Varieties: 83% Merlot, 11% Cabernet Franc, 6% Cabernet Sauvignon
Chateau la Tour du Moulin is an old estate, revived in 1987 by Josette Dupuch and her son Vincent. Vincent is a highly respected consultant oenologist (winemaker). The Fronsac appellation is Bordeaux's best kept secret with wines like this one, matching quality of many Pomerols at a fraction of the price.
From the great 2015 vintage, this wine has weight, plushness and ripeness but all is kept in check by a cool, bordeaux-style edge, seamlessly integrated oak and ripe tannins.
