Castillon Côtes de Bordeaux, Bordeaux, France
70% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc & 10% Cabernet Sauvignon
Grown in the beautiful and historic region of Belvès de Castillon, there is a legend that those who listen closely to the well at Château Côte Montpezat can still hear the pilgrims of Saint Jacques de Compostelle. Allow this wine to open up and you will find a wonderful bouquet of spiced cherries, cedar, and tobacco that drift into flavors of black currant, prunes, and a pinch of bell pepper on the tongue. Pair this wine with bangers and mash, tournedos rossini, or a Roquefort and onion tart.
