Chateau Moyau has its origins in the Middle Ages. Legend has it that the original settlers were pirates whose leader answered to the name Moyau. Another story claims that Moyau is derived from the word marais or marsh. The Chateau was owned by the Herteman family from the 18th century until 2004, when Dr. Bernhard Koehler, a German fund manager living in Switzerland, purchased it. He saw potential in the six residential buildings, two large wine cellars, pigeon tower and stables. Through benign neglect many parcels had not been replanted. As a result, the new owner inherited parcels of old vine Carignan, Grenache and Syrah, most over 60-year’s old. Koehler hired a passionate young wine maker, Stephanie Chanot, to lead a team of two full-time employees. Previously, Chanot was technical director of the vineyards of Baron Philippe de Rothschild in Chile. Koehler also brought in Claude Gros, a respected consulting winemaker with clients throughout the world, to consult and advise at Chateau Moyau Read more »

  • Château Moyau Rosé Blend Coteaux du Languedoc la Clape 2007

    Snoothrank:

    This opens with quite spicy and gamy notes on the nose before revealing sweet strawberry and pomegranate fruits touched with a hint of Chinese 5-spice powder. A nicely styled yet fairly rich rose with lovely structure. Just a touch of tannin, bright acids support intense, slightly herbal and leathery red fruits. Rich baked strawberry fruits wit...

  • Château Moyau Rosé Blend Coteaux du Languedoc la Clape 2007

    Snoothrank:

    Nice deep bronzed cherry hue. Sweet Maraschino cherry flavors with some watermelon flavors on the backend. This is a classic rose that finishes on melon and strawberry flavors. Would work well with quiche, or moules frites on a hot summers day Read More

    Snoothrank:

    Made from a blend of southern red grape varietals (52% Carignan, 24% Grenache Noir, 18% Mourvedre and 6% Syrah), the wine is cherry red with flashes of black in the glass with an intense nose of black currants, raspberries and licorice.
