Chateau Castera Medoc 2015
|Region||France, Bordeaux, Medoc|
Vineyards in the Press family's 450-acre estate surround one of the Médoc's grand chateaus owned by Bordeaux elite over centuries. The wine from 155 planted acres has been spiced with 12 months in wood, giving a toasty character to the juicy black-currant fruit. It is a structured wine, ripe and with good potential. Drink from 2022.
Damson plum and bitter cherry fruit races through, flecked with savory, thyme and iron notes along the way. Light-bodied but fresh, with a pretty sanguine echo. Drink now through 2020.
