Château de l'Estang Red Bordeaux Blend Côtes de Castillon 2009

Member Review by zufrieden:

Another so-called "sleeper of the vintage", this Côtes de Castillon does indeed deliver for the price: similar to some St-Emilion if one might be so bold. The colour is of medium depth with red fruit (perhaps strawberry) and Merlot clearly dominating the flavour profile. Sufficient grip to survive up to 5 years but this is not necessary: the balance is good now with a medium finish and just a touch of unwanted acerbity. Good value. 87 points.

Another sleeper of the vintage, the opaque ruby/purple-tinged 2009 l'Estang exhibits lots of sweet black currant and black cherry fruit intermixed with a hint of vanillin. Medium to full-bodied, with surprisingly pure, concentrated, lengthy flavors, ... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2009 Chateau de L'Estang 750ml
