WIne reviews - Chateau Moulin Pey Labrie from Canon Fronsac
The team at DiscoverVin is very pleased to see 2 new reviews in the Australian media for one of our favorite Bordeaux reds- Chateau Moulin Pey-Labrie 2006.
From the appellation of Canon-Fronsac on the right bank of Bordeaux, adjacent to Pomerol and Saint-Emillon. This is an appellation recently highlighted in an article in Decanter magazine by Oz Clarke. He wrote about how he was "excited" by the quality of wines being produced in Canon-Fronsac and other right bank appellations.
Chateau Moulin-Pey Labrie is one of the best producers in this appellation.
Benedicte and Gregoire Hubau made their first vintage in the Bordeaux commune of Fronsac at Chateau Moulin Pey-Labrie in 1988.
Their philosophy is to produce wine that is an expression of the ‘terroir” of their 6.75 hectare vineyard. They work with influential Bordeaux based oenologist Michel Rolland to make wines with finesse, elegance and balance.
So here are the 2 reviews-the first by Kerry Skinner in Quench in the Illawarra Mercury in July 2012 and the second by John Lewis in the Newcastle Herald August 2012
