The new baby project from proprietor Silvio Denz is the 200-case lot called Mouleyre which is from the best block in the entire vineyard. A blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc at 14.5% alcohol the vines were cropped at 20 hectoliters per hectare. In short this may be the very finest wine ever produced in the Cotes de Castillon. Bottled unfined and unfiltered by consultant Michel Rolland the wine has an opaque purple color a gorgeous nose of graphite black truffles blackberry jam incense acacia flowers and forest floor. Layer upon layer of richness an unctuous texture impressive purity and a long long finish make this a huge sleeper of the vintage and a major overachiever. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2023.

A wine with tangy acidity and sweet tobacco berry and plum character. Full body with a cranberry and lemon rind undertone. Juicy and tangy. Impressively balanced. Better in 2015.
