This blend of 68% Cabernet Sauvignon, 21% Merlot and 11% Petit Verdot, with Michel Rolland as the consultant, displays a deep ruby/purple color and possesses straightforward notes of black and red currants intermixed with cedar wood, roasted herbs and underbrush. It is a medium-bodied, silky-textured wine to drink over the next 10-15 years. Drink: 2013 - 2028
In a sense, this used to be the second wine of Leoville Poyferre, but like Clos de Marquis and La Croix de Beaucaillou, it is now a separate wine from a completely distinct vineyard owned by Leoville Poyferre.

Tasted at the chateau, the Moulin Riche is a blend of 59% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot and 11% Petit Verdot and is showing a lot of oak on the nose with blackberry, a touch of fruitcake, graphite and tar. A hint of mocha emerges with time. The palate is medium-bodied with very fine tannins, very supple and rounded but counterbalanced with good acidity, leading to a silky smooth finish polished by judicious creamy oak. Very in keeping with Didier Cuvelierâ€™s style. Very fine. Drink 2012- Tasted March 2011.
A solid red with currants and toasted oak as well as smoke. Full and chewy with a long finish. A little rustic but I appreciate the concentration.
