Terroir

Château Moulin Caresse is located at 20km to the east of Saint-Emilion, on the border with Périgord. With its 42 hectars of grapevines, it dominated the valley of Dordogne. The vineyard is divided between the clay-limestone slopes, composed of a draining soil, and the sunny plane of Boulbènes.

lecepage Grape Variety

Considering the number of grape-vines, Merlot is the third red grape variety in France, after grenache and carignan. It produces high quality wines characterised by a strong nose of red fruits and spices. Its name comes from the Common Blackbirds – “Merles” in French -, which love having merlot grape as dessert.

lemillesime Vintage

For a long part of the year, the winegrowing region of South-West was touched by various rainfalls that brought up the humidity level. However, in August the vineyards could benefit from strong sunrays until the beginning of the harvest on September 15th.
