Castillon Cotes de Bordeaux, Bordeaux, France - Features a smooth cocoa powder frame around the core of ripe currant, dark cherry and plumb. The vanilla oak notes hold through the finish, with a touch of raspberry. The vineyard was certified organic in 2013. On the palate, it has a frank, very round onset with a beautiful evolution towards acidity. The red fruits are present throughout the tasting, and the tannins are well blended and round. An elegant and smooth wine.
