Château Moulin de Mallet
Château Moulin de Mallet is situated in the commune of Pujols just south of Saint-Emilion. This plateau was originally dotted with windmills (Moulin) one of which forms the Château which is home to the Couderc family. The estate has been in the same family since 1898 and through five generations. Serge Couderc and his son Julien, a qualified viticulturist and oenologist, have overseen a complete modernisation of this property.
Another great result from the château that occupies the place of “House Claret” in our list. Expressive, aromatic and fresh, the palate is full of bilberry and plum fruits supported by very well defined tannins.
Try with a plate of Lasagne - wonderful!
This Moulin de Mallet owes its quality to the painstaking work undertaken in the vineyard in recent years (short pruning, managed grass cover, restricted yields, green harvesting,integrated pest control), as well as the vinification techniques aimed at fostering extraction of the fruit and colour without too much tannin.
