Half of the Chateau Moulin de la Rose estate's name is probably due to the former presence of a mill, and the other half seems to be linked with a knight named Chevalier Larose, who owned the neighbouring Chateau Gruaud Larose, in the 18th Century.

Acquired in 1971 by Guy Delon, Chteau Moulin de la Rose is now managed by his children, Jean-Franois (Technical Director) and Guylne (Administrative Director). A small enclave among the classified growths of Saint-Julien with just 5 hectares of vines surrounded by grands crus classes Chateau Moulin de la Rose is nicknamed the Lilliputian of Saint-Julien.

The estate has a homogeneous terroir with some of the best gravelly soil in Saint-Julien. The blend of grape varieties 65% Cabernet Sauvignon and 35% Merlot, produces a generous, tannic wine that nevertheless maintains all the smoothness and finesse of the great wines of Saint-Julien.

The vat room houses 5 temperature-controlled stainless steel fermentation vats. The grapes are crushed prior to putting into vat and the new wine stays on the skins for approximately 3 weeks, although this can vary according to the ripeness of the tannin and the vintage character. The wines are aged the traditionally. Chateau Moulin de la Rose spends 20 months in French oak barrels, one third of which are new each year. The wine is racked every three months and fined during the second winter after the vintage.
