Côtes de Bourg 2016 - Château Moulin Eyquem
This beautiful, relatively large unknown Côtes de Bourg, was the favorite during our last wine tasting in Bordeaux.... The Château has some of the oldest vineyards in the Côtes de Bourg, which under the leadership of the Mostermans family is now one of the top estates in the appellation, producing high quality wines that get better every year. The 2016 vintage is in stock and is made from the grapes : 50% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Franc, 24% Cabernet Sauvignon and 1% Malbec. It is already delicious with rich, ripe fruit that is a delight to drink and it includes aromas of rich spicy fruit with a hint of tobacco. The wine is remarkably fresh and complex with good acidity and balance. An exceptional wine that all must try.
