2018 Chateau Brillette - Moulis-en-Médoc

2018 Chateau Brillette - Moulis-en-Médoc

Chateau Brillette’s forty-five hectares of vines are planted on an exceptional site on one of the highest points of Moulis-en-Médoc. It is a most singular terroir that allows us to produce a highly expressive wine with great character.
Concentrated and refined, with aromas of ripe berries and spices and a subtle touch of woody notes, Chateau Brillette is the estate’s purest form of expression. Wonderful after only a few years of aging, it is even more exquisite after long cellaring.

With an intense and deep color, the 2018 vintage offers a seductive scent of small black fruits. This maturity of the fruit takes shape in the mouth and reveals a robust, voluminous and balanced substance. A great success!

The 2018 Brillette is deep garnet-purple in color with scents of candied berries, earth and tobacco. 

The palate is full-bodied, rich and spicy with bright fruit and a smooth texture, refreshing finish.
