Cotes de Castillon is a new and continuously, changing designation. Before it became an official AOC designated appellation in 1989, the region was known as Bordeaux Superieur Cotes de Castillon. In 2009, Cotes de Castillon became part of the new, Cotes de Bordeaux appellation.
The Cotes de Bordeaux appellation was created to bring together several cotes of Bordeaux under a single banner, the idea being to improve the marketability of the wines and simplify the overall appellation structure. Individually, these appellations were struggling to find sufficient marketing resources to combat the increasing popularity of Bordeaux-style wines from emerging wine regions.
Some of the best value Bordeaux wines come from Cotes de Castillon. The wines can be rich, round, concentrated and complex and drink well young and age reasonably well. Bordeaux wine lovers should pay attention to the area as the wines offer a good price to quality ratio.
All Cotes de Castillon wines are red, made predominantly from Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc, with a permitted addition of Malbec, Petit Verdot and even Carmenere.
Tasting Note: moky cherries, licorice and espresso bean with truffle create the aromas
