A case includes 4 bottles of each wine.

Château de Tour de Gilet Ludon en Medoc 2006. Château Tour de Gilet is located in Ludon Médoc, 16 km north of Bordeaux in the Médoc area. This is a unique Bordeaux wine in that it is largely dominated by Petit Verdot. The nose is intense and elegant, rich in fruit and sweet spices, completed with pastry and floral nuances. The palate is supple, generous and round, supported by fine and silky tannins and well integrated oak.

Château du Moulin Noir Montagne Saint Emilion 2011. This notably complex right bank blend from a satellite appellation of Saint-Emilion offers appealing savoury notes along with a mineral, iron component and liquorice spice. The oak treatment is wonderfully integrated with wood spice elevating the bright red fruit.Harmoniously matured, graceful and very elegant. The staying power of the finish is impressive.

Château Plaisance Les Palues Supérieur 2009. An elegantly matured Bordeaux Superieur with surprising persistence. Named after the limestone soils ('palus') of the vineyards, this blend of 70% Merlot with 20% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Petit Verdot is showing lovely earthy, leather and liquorice notes along with cherry, raspberry and blackcurrant.

About the Winery

Château du Moulin Noir

​This beautiful right-bank Bordeaux estate consistently produces high-value, elegant and classic Merlot dominant wines and is considered one of the most famous Château of this appellation. Located in Montagne-Saint-Emilion, Château Moulin Noir consists of seven hectares of vineyards on clay and limestone soils.

This château owes its name to a family feuddating back to the Middle Ages. Two brothers were arguing about their father’s legacy with the youngest brother being incredibly jealous that everything went to the elder. He was so jealous that he burnt the château to the ground - Moulin Noir translates to “blackened Mill”.

Château Tour de Gilet

Château Tour de Gilet is located in Ludon Médoc, 16 km north of Bordeaux in the Médoc area. The Château was built on the foundation of an ancient abbey from the 12th century. At that time the vineyard was already surrounded by “jalles” or small criss-crossing drainage canals to help produce wines of higher quality. Today, oenologist Claude Gaudin makes an extraordinary wine at this small property, using techniques such as dense planting in the vineyard and green harvesting to lower the yield, sorting at the harvest and very natural wine making for maximum expression of the fruit.
