Wine of Moulis-en-Médoc appellation
Moulis-en-Médoc is the smallest commune appellation in the Médoc in terms of surface area. Its vineyards cover 600 hectares, which represents 4% of the Médoc wine region. From the east to the west, the Moulis-en-Médoc terroirs consist of a huge massif of Garonne gravel suitable for the cultivation of the Cabernet Sauvignon. This gravel is of the same lithological variety as that of the Grands Crus Classés. At the centre of the Moulis-en-Médoc appellation there is clay and limestone soil, which is very suitable for the Merlot, and to the west, there is a terroir made up of Pyrenean gravel whose characteristics are perfect for the cultivation of the above two grape varieties. 

With a blend primarily consisting of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, Moulis-en-Médoc wines combine finesse, power, complexity and offer up a bouquet of a rare richness. These are harmonious, elegant wines, which can be fairly full-bodied, yet still possess the roundness and nice melted tannins that give them a pleasantly soft, smooth mouthfeel. Moulis-en-Médoc wines possess exceptional ageing ability. Wines such as those produced by Château Chasse-Spleen, Château Brillette, Château Maucaillou and Château Poujeaux are worthy representatives of this terroir. 

Planted with vines since the 13th century, Moulis-en-Médoc owes its name to the large number of mills that once existed in the commune. Set amid pine trees, it is sheltered from the prevailing winds and therefore provides a microclimate in which the grapes can ripen well. The terrain is made up of gravel terraces interspersed with areas of silt or limestone, alternating light, warm soil with cooler, deeper soil. The specifications for the production of Moulis-en-Médoc are particularly strict and only permit an average annual production of around 28,500 hectolitres.
