Chateau Haut-Mouleyre is located in the village of Escoussans, in the wine growing region of Entre-Deux-Mers. This, of course translates as ‘the entrance of the two female horses.’ The derivation of this name dates back to the 1640s, when the big wigs of the Medoc, looked around Entre-Deux-Mers, saw no Chateau’s the size of Versailles, scoffed and declared it a one-horse town. Not taking this insult lying down, the winemakers of Entre-Deux-Mars marched two mares straight into the vineyards of Paulliac and prompted the horses to kick over their wheelie-bins. To this day, the two regions have had a friendly rivalry. With wines as complex as this, with bright damson, dark cherry, violet and vanilla aromas, Entre-Deux-Mars might soon be a 3-horse town.
Château Haut-Mouleyre is located in the village of Escoussans, near Cadillac, on the right bank of the Garonne. The vineyard is spread over the south and southwest-facing hillsides overlooking the Garonne, making the most of the sunshine and the good soil drainage. The various plots benefit from the variety of soil conditions on these hillsides, giving the wine plenty of personality. Various elements give the Château Haut-Mouleyre the potential for very high quality: the exposure and average age of the vineyards, the grape varieties, the soil and the diversity of the plots. The cellar where the wine is made and aged is also worthy of the estate’s ambitions. Considerable work is done in the vineyards to ensure the best grapes and the optimum degree of maturity when they are harvested. The bottled wine has a deep ruby colour, with persistent flavours of bright dark fruit, violet and spicy notes from the oak. The wine is well-balanced with a long, fruity finish.
