About Chateau Le Moulin:
This watermill dates from the early Two and a half hectares beautifully situated on the near by plateau of Cloquet. The mill itself, known as Moulin de Lavaud is built on the Barbanne River and used to provide not only wine but bread.
The economic crisis between the two world wars put an end to the production of flour and caused the splitting up of the vineyard.
In 1969, Michel and Genevieve Querre bought the property with its three hectares and restored the building formerly home to two mayors of Pomerol and the sculptor Amédée Constant.
In 1997, Michel Querre together with his son Emmanuel was able to acquire the neighbouring vines of Château Cloquet situated on the plateau of the same name and produce the first harvest of the restored mill.
Traditional vinification in open wooden vats of small capacity thermo-regulated fermentation and ageing in new oak barrels produce highly concentrated fruity and elegant wines.
