Château Le Grand Moulin Collection Grande Réserve 2016

Dark in color with a nice nose of dark berries and mocha … On the mid palate the wine displays some nice dark plums, dark berries and chocolate/mocha to match the nose. On the medium length finish the wine displays some nice acidity, edgy tannins and nice dryness. This is a lovely, drink now right bank Bordeaux from the Cotes de Blaye region. It might soften some, if you prefer softer wines. I’d give it an -88, great for the price. From the LCBO web site check stock

Though he’d rather be a musical genius, Jean-François Reaud did wonders with this estate, in the family since 1904. Dense and full of tannins, it also offers ripe fruits. Its structure and density match the intensity of the fruit, meaning the wine has a great future. With a dense aftertaste, the wine will age, so drink from 2022. Editors’ Choice. Score – 92. (Roger Voss, Wine Enthusiast, Feb. 1, 2019)
