Côtes De Castillon, Bordeaux

Domaine de L'Aurage

Côtes de Castillon Red Bordeaux Blend 2013

One of the many rising stars from the relatively unknown #castillon #cotesdebordeaux region. I think I tried this one pretty young but already lovely earthy cassis backbone, tightly knit tannins that linger in the mouth, once it opens up after decanting. I wonder what could have been after five more years but sometimes today is the day. — 14 hours ago

Château Duplessy

Premières Côtes de Bordeaux AOC Red Bordeaux Blend 2011

Enjoyed the ‘13 so much last night, figured the ‘11 would be a perfect bottle to open on the train to Paris! — 6 days ago

Château Clos L'Eglise

Côtes de Castillon Red Bordeaux Blend 2005

Elegant, well aged, showing eucalyptus on the nose with some cedar box. In the glass, tart red berries, teeth staining tannins and acidity that leaves you salivating. — a month ago

Château d'Aiguilhe Querre

Seigneurs d'Aiguilhe Comtes Von Neipperg Côtes de Castillon Red Bordeaux Blend 2015

Amazing. It's fruity, but I've felt only a sweet, ripe plum. But the best is the rest: spicy aromas with leather and smoke like from smokehouse. I simply love it! — 11 days ago

Château Moya

Castillon Côtes Red Bordeaux Blend

2012. Spicy. Still some tannins. Strong structure. Big, toothsome Bordeaux — 16 days ago

Château La Brande

Castillon Côtes de Bordeaux Red Bordeaux Blend 2015

Costco FIND!! QPR up the wazoo. Buy several bottles now. Too good to be a table wine. Too cheap not to drink every day. Brandied pears on the nose: all that clove and cinnamon and fruit steeped in ancient liquor that sat in fFrench oak for ages. Plums. Cassis. Followed by Heat and a long lasting finish that feels like an UNwrapped/unsmoked FRESH cigar. — 21 days ago

Château La Bourrée

Castillon Côtes de Bordeaux Red Bordeaux Blend 2016

Strangely the only Bordeaux at our local French modern bistrot...but that’s fine with us as it’s a perfect value for the money. Alcohol on the nose. Enough tannins for a mild pucker, but not “big” like a Paulliac. A bottle one could have two of. — 7 days ago

Château Roc de Cambes

Côtes de Bourg Red Bordeaux Blend 2016

This lovely 2016 blend from the region has a regal, purple darkness right out of the bottle. The nose is lovely fruit that enters with sharp tannins and a hint of current that should mellow with time. The finish is short but pleasant. Easily drinkable today, but will be better as it ages. I would buy this again. — a day ago
