The 2012 Bordeaux Barrels Diary: Christian Moueix's Wines of Distinction

Despite excellent quality, the Moueix family is dropping prices on its lineup of 2012 Pomerols

Posted: April 8, 2013  By James Molesworth

Christian Moueix is a man of distinction. Reserved, serious, intelligent. And he crafts distinctive wines. His efforts to resurrect the renamed Bélair-Monange estate in St.-Emilion (recently merging it with Magdelaine) along with his flagship properties of Trotanoy and La Fleur-Pétrus in Pomerol, place him among the elite château owners in all of Bordeaux.

The 2012 Bordeaux Barrels Diary: The Right Bank Has the Right Stuff

The Merlot-based wines of Cheval-Blanc, Pétrus, Vieux Château Certan and Le Pin met greater success than their Left Bank cousins in 2012

Posted: April 4, 2013  By James Molesworth

With Merlot the early favorite for lead variety in 2012, I was anxious to see what the Right Bank accomplished in this tricky vintage. Here, in Pomerol and St.-Emilion, Merlot plays the lead over Cabernet Sauvignon, with Cabernet Franc often an important player as well.
