CHATEAU LA MOULINE

Cédric Coubris

CHATEAU LA MOULINEUntil in February 1920, Vicomte de Courcelles lived with its family on the Domaine de La Mouline. It is then Ismaël LASSERRE which became the happy owner of this winegrowing estate of a surface of 4 hectares 70 ares and 37 centiares. It will exploit it until its death. His André son, will ensure the succession and will take again the exploitation in the Forties. Then, her daughter Madeleine LASSERRE, wife of Jean COUBRIS will inherit it in the Sixties, and together, they will assume the responsibility for it until March 19th, 1981. And it is with passion that their child Jean-Louis COUBRIS accompanied by his sons Jean-Christophe and Cédric, ensures the wine making to perpetuate the family tradition. They work together with the development of the property during decades 80 and 90. To date, Cédric COUBRIS, continues the exploitation of 22 hectares vines on the 25 hectares of surface of the property, HVE certified (High Environmental Value) since 2017, with her two daughters Lucie and Julie. “2015 and 2016 are two years exceptional which join for our greater pleasure the 2009 and 2010”, Cédric Coubris explains us. “After 2013 and 2014, very weak in volume but with a pretty quality, we have quality and the quantity. We even granted ourselves the luxury to gather the grapes 4 type of vines of the property in 4 times. Merlots then a first interruption before beginning again on Cabernets Sauvignon, idem for Cabernets francs and in end Petits Verdots.” Great success for this Moulis-en-Médoc Cru Bourgeois 2016, rich in color, full-bodied, complex, harmonious, that smells good ripe fruits with stone and undergrowth, opulent mouth with spicy connotations, a wine of beautiful frame, Of course, as in 2015, of intense colour, with a complex nose, it is an ample wine, persistent, structured, well full-bodied, ample in the mouth, with nuances of blackcurrant and pepper, with melted tannins but present at the same time. La cuvée L'Eminence de la Mouline 2016, a selection of the most beautiful berries of the harvest and raised in 100% new barrels, where blend the flavors of undergrowth and redcurrant, of purple color, of mouth dominated by spices (cinnamon) and red fruit cooked, dense, all in finesse and distinction. The 2015 is intense purple color, has rich and tasty tannins, very fragrant (blackberry, spices...), a wine combining power and finesse, fat and intensity, ideal on a roasted capon or a terrine of pheasant with dry fruits.
