A personal favorite the past few years. It seriously punches well above its weight.
“Coming from the Castillon region, which is a treasure trove of value in the vintage, the 2018 Clos Les Lunelles is a blend of 80% Merlot and 10% each of Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon. It tastes like the essence of limestone with its salty minerality and beautiful black cherry, currant, and crushed flowers aromas and flavors. Medium to full-bodied, salty, mineral-laced, and beautifully balanced, it might be the finest Castillon in the vintage!” -JS
93 to 95 points for less than $35! What are you waiting for?
Very concentrated and intense this year. It’s full-bodied with lots of berries and hints of dried fruit. Chewy, oak-infused tannins. Salty undertone. Needs time to soften. One for the cellar. 80% cabernet sauvignon, 10% cabernet franc and 10% cabernet sauvignon. Try after 2024.
