  • Château de Pitray Red Bordeaux Blend Côtes de Castillon 2012


    The wine is a nice deep ruby color in the glass, classic coloring for the blend. The nose presents aromas of leather, oak and a bit of dusty limestone over a hint of green grass and mint. The taste is somewhat fruit forward with a rush of blackberry and currant up front that transitions nicely to some mineral notes midpalate. The finish is sm... Read More

  • Château Hyot Côtes de Castillon 2010


    This was my review about 3 yrs ago - "Very approachable for so early. Maybe it was due to having several other Bordeaux wines but I found this to be lighter than most, but really a lovely wine to drink. Plenty of dark berry fruits, oak, spice and mocha on the nose. The magenta color belies the complexity of this effort. Underlying cassis, anise,... Read More

  • Chateau d'Aiguilhe Cotes de Castillon 2010


    John Talbot, we love ye. You may have lost the Battle of Castillon (July 17, 1453), but the regionally defined wine is great - especially in 2010. This wine has cedar (and I know about cedar), chocolate and cherry on the nose - with a hint of vanilla spice (oak treatment). The entry is spicy with blackberry, chocolate and a hint of tannin. Thi... Read More

  • Chateau Goubau "La Source" 2009


    This is the premier wine of Chateau Goubau and it quite rightly presents an interesting, deep, rich red colour and a nose of Maraschino Cherry, wet earth, coffee and maple bacon. Entry is grainy, filled with cherry Kirsch flavours and the finish is quite long. Why pay St.-Emilion prices when this is available? 89 points. Read More

  • Chateau d'Aiguilhe 2008


    This wine shows why the very general location of an important battle to the east of St.-Emilion is definitely on the up-and-up; deep, dark and full of the sweet scent of cherries, this wine enters the mouth with good, declining tannin, sweet red fruit and a hint of medicinal herb (eucalyptus, maybe). Long, powerful finish. Can be cellared for... Read More

  • Chateau de Pitray Cotes de Castillon 2010


    The 2010 Premier Vin Chateau de Pitray has a Merlot-dominant nose of bright cherry, rich tobacco and cedar; the entry is slightly tannic and leathery with less fruit than promised. The finish is a bit stem-like, but not excessively so. Finish is medium. Great now. 86 points. Read More
