Size: 750ml
Type: Red Wine
Varietal: Red Bordeaux Blend
Country: France
Region: Bordeaux, Castillon Cotes de Bordeaux

An intense wine from the Becot family (Michel Rolland is the consultant), this blend of 75% Merlot and 25% Cabernet Franc was cropped at a very low 25.5. hectoliters per hectare. The wine has an opaque ruby/purple color and a big, projected nose of red and black fruits, toasty oak, graphite, and a hint of burning embers. A large-scaled wine at 14.5% alcohol, with the requisite glycerin and unctuous texture, this is a thick, juicy, very pure and impressively well-made wine from one of the most fashionable satellites of the Cotes de Bordeaux (Castillon), and thus kudos should go to proprietress Julliette Becot. Drink it over the next decade." Reviewed by Robert Parker.

2012 Clos les Lunelles Castillon Cotes de Bordeaux (Futures)

"The 2012 boasts a dense purple color along with a gorgeous bouquet of camphor, black raspberries, kirsch, licorice and graphite. On the palate, some of the crushed chalk from the limestone soils makes an appearance. This gorgeously proportioned, full-bodied Cotes de Castillon is one of the two or three finest wines of the appellation as well as an outstanding sleeper of the vintage. It should drink well for 10+ years." -Robert Parker

2010 Clos les Lunelles Castillon Cotes de Bordeaux

"This sports some toasty punch, with dark fig, blueberry sauce and blackberry notes laced with ample toast. A hefty style, but nicely rounded."
-Wine Spectator, 89 to 92 pts.

"A sensational wine made from 80% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Cabernet Franc from yields of 25 hectoliters per hectare, and by far the most alcoholic of all the Perse estates (14.4%), this is also the most concentrated and densest wine of the appellation, coming from the clay and limestone plateau of the Cotes de Castillon. A full-bodied beauty, opaque purple in color, with notes of cassis, black raspberry, licorice and camphor, some smoky oak is also present in this super-intense, uber-concentrated wine, which transcends the appellation. Drink it over the next decade. A sleeper of the vintage." -Robert Parker
