Des Demoiselles, Côtes de Castillon 2015


Region: Cotes de Castillon

Tasting note:

Heady and ripe, this is a strong bold concentrated and powerful wine that is extremely direct and persisted so you get full on blackcurrant liqueur flavours going in one straight line not deviating from the centre making this quite a tense strict wine right now. Limestone markers come through in the wet stone and graphite pencil led elements, giving a nice salinity and minerality to it, but the tannins are super present and coat the mouth. It’s the signature style, really showing off the terroir more than the vintage here, though that comes through in the power of the elements. I actually like this a lot, it feels clean and precise, very detailed and focussed. Good styling and sculpting, well worked, harmonious and although quite savoury I love it. You get the cool freshness at the end, a touch of creaminess to the finish which lingers and is so just appealing and comforting.” – Decanter – 91 points

Wednesday, March 3, 2021 – Plum, currant, black-olive, dried-herb and oyster-shell aromas. It’s medium-bodied with silky tannins and a succulent, savory finish. Drink or hold.” – James Suckling – 90 points

Solid tannins and rich fruit come together in this ripe, still-young wine. It has good potential, with bold black fruit and a dense, mineral texture. It will need several years for those tannins to soften. Drink from 2021.” – Wine Enthusiast – 88 points
