We’re really impressed by this fruit forward wine – from the Castillon region of the right bank of Bordeaux. So often I have tasted wines from this region that are just a little ‘too rustic’ for their own good, but thankfully not the case here.
Owned and run by Nicolas & Alexandra Robin, the estate is farmed organically but not certified. 90% of the wine see some oak ageing with a mixture of new and older barrels that do not over power the fruit but add weight and texture. Aromas of blackcurrant, blackberry notes interwoven with some spice undertones. 14% vol.
