The parcels of the Moulin de Rioucreux are located in the commune of Saint-Christoly-de-Blaye in the area of Saint-Savin. The vineyard covers 16 hectares of Bordeaux AOC (white, rosé) and Blaye Côtes de Bordeaux, with three types of terroirs: clayey, clay-limestone and sandy-clay. The vines are 15% white and 85% red.
For the white grappes, we work with 28-year-old Sauvignon gris and 4-year-old Sauvignon blanc vines. Château Moulin de Rioucreux's dry whites are very fruity wines, with citrus fruits, quite fat on the palate, atypical because of their balance between acidity and fat for maturing in vats.
In red, we work with Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec and Merlot vines. The average age of the vines is 18 years, 55 years for the oldest vines. The reds produced are rather fruity, easy to combine with meals with friends or with an aperi0f. The soils can vary for the same parcels, from sandy to clay-limestone.
