Deep ruby red, concentrated fruit aromas, rich plum flavours and hints of vanilla on the finish.
Moulin de Pillardot takes its name from an ancient windmill set among 77 hectares that make up Chateau Bourdicotte in the Gironde. It is the Estate's top cuvee - a Bordeaux Superieur from a tiny plot of the Chateau's finest vines. These vines occupy one of the the most elevated points in the Bordeaux region - perfect position for wonderfully fragrant wines like this one.
Head winemaker, Jean-Francois Corps ferments the Merlot and Cabernet juice seperately in a state of the art facility and ages the wine 6 months in small oak barriques before blending.
