The village of Saint-Georges creates some of the best wine in Montagne-Saint-Emilion with vineyards benefiting from Merlot-friendly clay soil situated on rolling hillsides that capture the morning sun. Grand Moulin Macquin ranks among the region's top properties and, after a recent acquisition by the historic Rambeaud winemaking family, it's experiencing a renaissance in quality that we're excited to share. The 2014 is a near even split of Merlot and Cabernet, impeccably balanced and full of ripe fruit and smoky minerality. We loved this wine paired with a slow cooked lentil and beef stew.
