Château Morillon, grand cru Saint-Emilion 2012

CR72512

The richness and depth of the clay soils shows through in this characterful wine with hints of graphite amongst the attractive juicy fruit. The palate is ripe and generous with great plummy fruit and a lovely finish.

Press Reviews

Here’s an impressive mature claret that’s drinking well right now. A blend of 80% merlot and 20% cabernet franc, it opens with smooth red fruit, enhanced by mellow notes of cedar and graphite, slipping down with a velvety finish.
Will Lyons, The Sunday Times Magazine, 14th April 2019

This wine is quite lush and smooth, with sleek berry fruits and the first signs of leathery, earthy maturity. There’s some richness and generosity here, but this claret also has structure and good acidity. It would make an agreeable partner with food or enjoy on its own.
Jamie Goode, The Sunday Express, 13th January 2019

In my Christmas list I included Château Morillon 2012 from Tanners; it’s too late now to place an internet order, but if you live near Shrewsbury I recommend popping in for one.
Victoria Moore, The Daily Telegraph, 22nd December

A claret perfect for drinking now with fruit still present (red plum), while age has softened any hard edges and added layers of truffle-laced complexity.
Hamish Anderson, The Telegraph, 16th December 2018
