2004 Moulin-Haut-Laroque, Fronsac

SKU #1264819 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 A big time sleeper of the vintage from Fronsac, this beauty from proprietor Jean-Noel Herve has hit the bull’s eye. A dark ruby/purple color is accompanied by notes of black currants, sweet cherries, crushed rocks, and a distinctive minerality. It is a medium to full-bodied, structured effort with sweet tannin, decent acidity, and oodles of fruit as well as richness. (RP)  (6/2007)

Wine Spectator

 Aromas of black cherries, flowers and fresh herbs follow through to a medium-bodied palate, with firm tannins and a solid fruit and mineral finish. Needs a little time. (JS, Web Only-2007)

This is dark and fresh with raspberry, currant and earthy aromas and good middle weight. There is a smooth, plush texture with no edges or noticeable tannin and good ripeness on this easy to drink bargain. A ready to drink wine with a lot of life ahead. Robert Parker calls this a sleeper of the vintage.

We sold a bunch of this wine last year—now it is back. These lesse-known 2004s are fantastic about now and they will age well for several years. This Merlot-based wine is a bit old school and has blackberry aromas with a touch of oak. Full-flavored and classic Bordeaux on the palate. Some earthiness on the finish. Very good property making excellent value reds these days.

Very attractive notes of dark cherries along with cherry noyaux, milk chocolate and plums. Although soft and easy on the palate it has its tannins still very much present holding the soft fruit. Very pleasant and very food friendly.

Additional Information:



- A very popular red grape variety found in the great wines of St. Emilion and Pomerol. It is the most planted variety in Bordeaux, and it has also become an extremely fashionable red in many regions including California. Although it has a reputation to be smooth, and easy to drink when young, Merlot is also capable of producing extremely intense wines as well. It is often used as a blending agent with Cabernet Sauvignon.


- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.
