Many of our favorite Bordeaux are made by the small-scale vignerons who are making highly-individualized, artisanal Bordeaux on sites the large châteaux haven’t (yet) been able to acquire.

Moulin de Tricot, a teeny-tiny Chateau in Margaux, is one of our favorite examples. They've been around for centuries and the family just refuses to sell out to the bigger châteaux. They keep their local traditions alive, making Bordeaux that doesn't cater to the ever-changing fashions.

They work by hand, planting their vines much too close for tractors, in the ancient way. Keeping the vines so closely packed isn't just a way of pre-committing to hand-harvesting, it’s also a traditional way of controlling each vines’ yields. These lower yields make for naturally concentrated flavors, without any sort of technical interventions in the cellar. Intense, terroir driven goodness!

What importer Rosenthal Wine Merchant has to say about this wine...

The Rey family produces approximately 12,000 bottles per year of their Haut-Médoc. This wine is fermented in stainless steel tanks and is then racked into small barrel (none of which is new) for one year before being assembled and bottled. Each year we purchase 3600 bottles of this production for the US market.
