[Add to wish list] [Add to pre-order list] Clos Les Lunelles Cotes de Castillon Unreleased - 91-92 - - - -
Hide the tasting notes

A fresh and lightly salty young red with a medium body, firm and silky tannins and a crisp finish. Linear and focused.

Score: 91 - 92 James Suckling, Jamessuckling.com

From higher elevation parcels that weren’t affected by the frost, the 2017 Clos Lunelles is a Merlot-dominated cuvée blended with 10% each of Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon. This inky-colored effort offers impressive amounts of sweet black raspberry fruits and crushed flowers, lots of salty minerality, medium-bodied richness, and outstanding purity and elegance. It’s the real deal and a smoking good Côtes de Castillon.

A savory streak pulls soft-edged raspberry and plum fruit along, with a light anise note chiming in on the finish.

[Add to wish list] [Add to pre-order list] Montlandrie Cotes de Castillon Unreleased - 90-91 - - 87-90 -
Hide the tasting notes

This is very minerally with crushed stones and dark fruit. Medium body and tight and firm tannins. Excellent.

Score: 90 - 91 James Suckling, Jamessuckling.com

On the overt side, with a blast of plum and blueberry fruit up front backed by just enough of a chalky spine to keep this honest. Offers a vanilla coating on the finish.

Score: 87 - 90 James Molesworth, Wine Spectator
