2011 Domaine du Castel Petit Castel
- Size: 750ml
- Type: Red Wine
- Country: Israel
"The 2011 Petit Castel is a Bordeaux blend, primarily Merlot (39%) and Cabernet Sauvignon (54%), with Cabernet Franc (2%), Malbec (3%) and Petit Verdot (2%), all aged for 16-18 months in French oak (only 15% new, the rest second and third use). It comes in at 14% alcohol. This seems like a lovely Petit Castel for its graceful, very understated and beautifully balanced demeanor. At times, though, it seems to disappear in the mouth. Its reasonable mid-palate, nice texture and fresh fruit will still make this a wine to enjoy drinking with food, not just to use to impress your friends at a big tasting. The bottle will empty quickly. It will drink well young and hold nicely for the next several years. Drink now-2020." - Mark Squires, eRobertParker.com #210, Dec 2013 Reviewed by: The Wine Advocate - 89pts
