Château du Moulin Rouge Haut-Medoc 2011

Member Review by duncan 906:

This bottle was part of a l;ot I bought on the website www.bidforwine.co.uk/auctionms/show/104384. Haut-Medoc is a large appellation set up in 1936 for wines produced in 15 communes on the eastern side of the Medoc peninsular stretching nearly 40 miles north of the City of Bordeaux.Winemaking really got started here at the end of the 17th century when Dutch engineers drained the salt marshes and it now includes some of the world's greatest wine estates though some are in sub-appellations such as Pauillac and Martgaux.My bottle was made by Vignobles Ribeiro-Pelon,a company named after the Chateau owner's family. It consists of 50% merlot,40% cabernet sauvignon and 10% cabernet franc and was aged for a year in oak barrels. I started my bottle last night withj my supper of chicken breast and I did enjoy it.There is plenty of a blackcurrant,plum and blueberry style fruit there with a suggestion of cigar box.The tannins are soft but well structured and this is a very smooth and mellow wine.I am not the only one to have a good opinion of this wine because it got a silver medal at the 2014 Wine Concourts Mondial in Brussels and a bronze at the Concours de Bordeaux
