Description Build A Case!
 
The illustrious and famed Bordeaux negociant firm of Jean Pierre Moueix was founded by Jean Pierre Moueix in 1937 and now owns and holds exclusive rights to sell and manage some of the greatest vineyards on the right bank of Bordeaux. The Moueix family and their long time winemaker, Jean Claude Berrouet, have defined a style of winemaking distinguished by integrity and total devotion to the expression of each individual vineyard.

The Chateau Grand Village estate is owned by Jacques Guinaudaeau, owner and winemaker of the illustrious and very rare Chateau Lafleur Pomerol. The estate is managed in the same way as Lafleur using classic "jardinage" technique: crop thinning, hand harvesting, table sorting, small batch fermentations preceded by a gentle cold soak and micro vinifications.

TASTING NOTES: A sleeper of the vintage, this wine from the Guinaudeau family (the proprietors of Lafleur) may well be the best I have tasted from them. A blend of 75% Merlot and the rest Cabernet Franc, the wine is more opulent and concentrated than previous vintages. With powerful kirsch and black raspberry fruit notes intermixed with hints of underbrush and licorice, this beauty should drink nicely for 5 6 years..Robert Parker, February/2013
