Item #33086
Size: 750ml
Type: Red Wine
Varietal: Red Bordeaux Blend
Country: France
Region: Bordeaux, Castillon Cotes de Bordeaux

"This wine is a blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc and shows powerful, yet well integrated, oak. The palate is laden with thick concentrated dark fruits such as plum, cassis and black cherry that give way to hints of creamy mocha. This is a fantastic wine that would appeal to fans of both California wine as well as Bordeaux."
Reviewed by: Tim E, Wine Manager, Binny's Plainfield

"From the brilliant proprietor Stephan von Neipperg, the 2010, a blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc that hit 15% natural alcohol, is ripe and intense but exhibits good minerality and freshness as well as lots of blueberry and blackberry fruit, with hints of charcoal, licorice and asphalt. Rich and full-bodied, with no hard edges." - Robert Parker, Jr.

"Very lush and expressive, with caressing plum sauce, mulled blueberry and blackberry fruit and melted licorice and warm fruitcake flavors, all gliding together through the finish. Offers lovely range and a seductive mouthfeel."

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
