2015 Chateau Trois Moulins Haut Medoc - 91 PTS - WE
"Equally divided between Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon with a seasoning of Cabernet Franc, this richly perfumed wine is juicy and full of blackberry flavors. From the same ownership as Cambon la Pelouse and in the southern Haut-Médoc, the wine will age well. Drink from 2021. - Roger Voss" - Wine Enthusiast (April 2018), 91 pts
2012 Chateau Trois Moulins Haut Medoc - 87 PTS - WE
"Produced by the same team as Château Cambon la Pelouse, this wine is already drinkable. With attractive black currant fruits and acidity, it is gently tannic with a dry core. The aftertaste is juicy and full of fruit. - RV" - Wine Enthusiast (September 2015), 87 pts
