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.

Always very expressive, it screams ripe black fruit aromas on the bouquet, whilst the palate is brimming with succulent mulberry and plum fruits, supported by a soft, underpinning tannin structure.
