2022 - Léoville Poyferré

Château Moulin Riche 2022


While the region endured a never-ending summer, the second hottest ever recorded, the vines taught our vineyard team a masterful lesson in resilience.

The vines didn’t just adapt, they gave their best in the face of adversity, offering a vintage of stunning balance.


Press reviews

MatthewJukes.com – Matthew Jukes : 18 (15.05.2023)

“This heroic Moulin Riche has stunningly exotic fruit and a super-long, dark, iron-rich edge that lends it a vampiric air.  So powerful and yet so poised, the tannins are stellar, and they will melt away gradually to leave a black-fruited Cabernet beauty of a wine.  In years gone by, this could easily have been a Grand Vin.   After introducing a second wine called M de Moulin Riche in 2018, the calibre of fruit and overall quality of this wine has skyrocketed, and it looks utterly divine.”


JebDunnuck.com – Jeb Dunnuck : 93-95 (11.05.2023)

“Another brilliant wine from the Cuvelier family, the 2022 Château Moulin Riche, it has a beautiful nose of cassis and blue fruits as well as subtle espresso, damp earth, and chocolaty nuances. Rich, medium to full-bodied, and structured, I was able to taste this beauty on multiple occasions, and it never failed to impress.”


Decanter – Gerogina Hindle : 91 (17.05.2023)

“Scented, sleek, almost soft and subtle – it’s so smooth and tempting, velvety-textured with well-integrated tannins, chalky but ripe and sweet fruit with lifted acidity that isn’t too high. Clove and dark chocolate nuances give the spice but this is generous and comfortable still with power and poise.”
