Located in the heart of the Medoc just north of Saint Estèphe, the 450-acre estate of Chateau Castera has been planted here since the 14th century.
Let that sink in for a moment.
Synonymous with quality, Chateau Castera’s name has always been appreciated and respected all over the year. They are one of the standard bearers of the Crus Bourgeois, which means superlative juice at an exceptional price.
A perfect Bordeaux blend marrying Merlot, Cabernet and Cabernet Franc, this is sensual Bordeaux with epic texture and a gorgeous flavor profile. Warm notes of blackberry, black currants, rose petals, juniper, coffee, pipe tobacco, raspberry coulis and toasty wood deliver a medium-bodied liquid performance worthy of a standing ovation. Structured, ripe and full of potential, this wine is just hitting its stride, with layers of depth and a finish that lingers into what seems like eternity.
Did we mention the 97 Point rating? We think we did, but just in case we forgot, let’s remind you.
Insane value, a MASSIVE score, and one of the region’s most respected producers.
What more could you want?
Coffee, tobacco and oak on the nose. Juicy and balanced on the palate with pronounced blackcurrant and smoke spice. Good expression of black fruit on the finish.
