MOUL175
This super little château is situated on the plateau of Pujol, a rocky outcrop overlooking the Dordogne and facing the slopes of St Emilion. Owned and run by Serge Couderc and his son Julien who manage the estate, following “lutte raisonnée” principles, they always look to take low yields hence the intensity of concentrated fruits.

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.

Tasting Notes

This property has been the source of our “House Claret” for a number of years and once again has delivered a super wine that is expressive, aromatic and fresh on the bouquet with a palate full of bilberry and plum fruits, supported by very well defined tannins.
