Unique in the Médoc, the team is 100% feminine: Queen, the Technical Manager, Florence the Administrative Manager and Pilar Jimenez, Winemaker working for the Château Moulin à Vent with a maternal focus.
The vineyard of our property has more than two centuries of existence, its chartreuse dates from the early nineteenth century and its winery was built in 1873.
Our terroir is a concentrate of the Médoc wine: gravel Garonne and serious Pyrenean rest on a clay-limestone substrate, promoting a long and consistent maturation of Merlots and Cabernets Francs. This arrangement favors the expression of powerful, elegant and racy wines.
Moulis is the smallest appellation of Médoc. Located west of most of the Médoc appellations, its “continental” vineyard makes Moulis the oldest of the Médoc vineyards.
