Château Sainte-Colombe Red Bordeaux Blend Côtes de Castillon 2005
A great example of an appellation punching above its weight, from a truly greatvintage.2005 yielded grapes of perfect ripeness so there was wonderfulconsistency amongst the wines of the region across all price points. This wineexhibits juicy, lush, plummy characteristics, backed by fine-grained tannins,and has surprising complexity on the finish. Try it with grilled lamb or lightgame dishes.

External Reviews for Château Sainte-Colombe Red Bordeaux Blend Côtes de Castillon
[Barrel tasting] Fresh and fruity with floral and plum aromas. Medium-bodied, with fine tannins and a fresh finish.
Medium in body but filled with flavor. Black cherry, spice box and currant. Lush in its flavors and carried along by soft tannins. Great andrsquo;05 drinker.
(Barrel tasting) Fresh and fruity with floral and plum aromas. Medium-bodied, with fine tannins and a fresh finish.
Moderately saturated medium red. Rather high-toned aromas of cherry, red plum, licorice, herbs and pepper. Bright acidity gives this wine good juicy cut and verve. A very fresh style of 2005, but seemingly a bit less dense in bottle than it was in barrel. Iandrsquo;d drink this sooner rather than later.
The property is planted with 70% Merlot and 30% Cabernet Franc averaging 37 years of age. It is aged in one-use barrels for around 15 months.This is a well-made 'satellite' wine of St Emilion offering a fresh, clean, dry profile at a very fair price.
(tasted from cuvandeacute;e shortly before bottling) Medium-deep red. Black cherry, licorice and a minty nuance on the nose. Juicy, penetrating and youthful, with good density and power. The wineandrsquo;s substantial tannins will require at least a few years of patience.
