Castillon, Côtes de Bordeaux
This wine comes from vineyards planted at the tip of the limestone plateau which stretches west to Saint-Emilion. These are the best parcels of the estate situated on the outskirts of the village of Saint-Philippe-d'Aiguille with subsoils of clay and limestone. Made from a blend of 95% Merlot grapes and 5% Cabernet Franc grapes, the wine is characterised by a mineral freshness in the nose which gives way to aromas of autumn fruits, good oak flavours and spice. On the palate, there is good tannic structure with attractive intensity and a persistent finish.
