Castegens Cotes de Bordeaux Castillon

2015 Château Castegens Castillon Cotes de Bordeaux - 90 PTS - BEST BUY - W&S

wine and spirits logo 250"Located in Castillon-la-Bataille, on clay-limestone slopes facing south toward the Dordogne River, this château stages an annual reenactment of the battle that ended the 100 Years War between England and France. The vineyards, planted to merlot (80 percent) and cabernet franc, are five miles east of St-Emilion. Where else would you find a bright, spicy, red-fruited Bordeaux with energy and drive in its tannins... for $17? Maybe the price dates back to the 15th century... or maybe it marks the renaissance of Castillon's grand terroir, long overlooked."

2016 Château Castegens Castillon Cotes de Bordeaux - 93 PTS & Editor's Choice - WE

wine enthusiast 93 pts"From vines on the slopes of its castle, a witness to the 1453 end of the Hundred Years' War, this solid, concentrated wine has everything in the right place. It has the power of the vintage, showing firm tannins, rich black fruits and acidity. The wine will develop slowly and surely and should be ready from 2023..- Roger Voss"
