A beautiful wine with an even nicer price tag!
Château Tour du Moulin situated on a plateau and the steep hills which dominate the Isle valley in Fronsac, this beautiful family property nearly recently disappeared. Renovated in 1987 by Josette Dupuch and her son "Vincent" the team set about working towards restoring the vineyard to prosperity. Today the vineyard stands at 7 hectares and benefits from a wonderful diversity of terroir. The plateau is of clay and chalk (similar to the Pomerol mix) and the steep hillside vines stand in red clay which adds elegance to the finesse and fruit.
The Winemaker "Vincent Dupuch began his wine career as a consultant and has networked with the likes of JC Berrouet at Château Petrus. In this way, he has amassed the secrets of the masters of the right bank and applies them to his own vineyard. He has increased the size from 1 to 7 hectares over the last 15 years and has year upon year strived to improve his wine. His stock intrade is passion, quality and perserverance.
The wine is as rich as would be expected, but still retains plenty of elegance, juicy black-plum fruits and a dense structure that needs to soften.
