Domaine de l'A Castillon, Bordeaux France 2016

Order 3+ Pre-Arrival Bordeaux $63.75 Bottle SAVE 15%

Prominent aromas of black cherry, cassis, and plum lead to tobacco and baking spice with a touch of chocolate, menthol, and minerals. The wine has an elegant, velvety palate, both refined and balanced with a freshness and long finish. It is best served with the mythic Steak Frites, but will also be perfect with boeuf bourguignon, braised duck with mushrooms, and strong cheeses.*

94 points, Jeb Dunnuck:
"Showing tons of limestone character, the 2016 Domaine de l'A gives up lots of ripe cherry and blackberry fruit, subtle floral and crushed rock, medium to full body, and a beautifully seamless, silky, layered style. As always, it shines for its incredible purity and elegance. It’s worth noting that this cuvée comes from the home estate of renowned consultant Stéphane Derenoncourt and comes from vineyards not far from Péby Faugères and Valandraud. It’s a consistently outstanding wine and has the ability to evolve gracefully for 15+ years." (2/18/19)

93 points, Wine Spectator:
"Ripe, focused, and pure, with a lovely caressing mouthfeel to the mix of cassis, plum, and black cherry puree flavors that cruise through. Light tobacco and iron notes chime in the background as the finish is sneaky long in this refined and balanced wine. Drink now through 2030. 3,917 cases made." (3/31/19)
