Mickael Moze-Berthon: Rocher-Gardat, Vieux Chantecaille and Gouprie, Bordeaux, France

Mickael Moze-Berthon makes wonderful wines, densely fruited and well-oaked, from no less than four estates, assembled over seven generations of family growers. His principal wine, is his Rocher-Gardat Montagne Saint-Emilion, from 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc grown on his seven hectares of vines on thinly-soiled, argilo-calcaire slopes.

Vieux Chantecaille, Saint-Emilion 2018

80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc, into 50% new oak. Mickael Moze-Berthon has only 1¼ hectares of land within the Saint-Emilion Grand Cru boundary, just across the road from the famed Pomerol property of Le Bon Pasteur, but as his cellar is outside the limits of the St Emilion Grand Cru appellation he can only sell it as Saint-Emilion – so he is delivering wine from a Grand Cru terroir at a modest price. Black chocolate and coconut oak accents over dark fruit: blackberries and black cherries. Intense and harmonious. Decant to drink now. Now-2026
