2015 vintage. This big 101 ha estate is considered one of the oldest in Bordeaux with vines planted in the 14th century. It's owned by the Castel family since 1971. A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Beautiful nose with cassis, blueberries and cedar wood. While the mouth doesn't quit live up to the nose, this is a classic Haut-Médoc with good purity, fresh acidity and well-integrated tannin that opens up nicely in the glass and that should age well. Could do with a bit more body but good value at 12,90 euro. Decanting recommended if you drink it now. Abv. 13%.

Currents, plum, asphalt, dried herbs, menthol, cigar box, mushrooms, sweet tobacco and nice acid. Forgot how much I love Bordeaux. This ones for you Jeremy :)

Very nice balance of black cherry, black currant fruit, minerals, gravelly nose, a little mint, and hinting at funky earth. Very nice. Will buy more asap.

Nose of cassis and a little wood; darker scents; smooth tannins and a light scent of cigar box

Dirt minerals mint anise and a beautiful nose. Rich color and long finish. Had with cassoulet - a great match. 2000 vintage.

Subtle fruit, barrel spice and earthy notes, precise but austere. Medicinal on palate.
