Futures 2015: Appellation Castillon-Côtes de Bordeaux

Castillon Côtes de Bordeaux used to be known as Cotes de Castillon and was renamed in 2009. The appellation produces only red wines. Merlot is the principal grape, though some cabernet franc and cabernet sauvignon are also blended. The AOC spreads over nearly 3,000 hectares, with a mix of sand, gravel, limestone, and alluvial soils.

The resulting wines are elegant and easy-drinking, with expressive aromatics and strong ageing potential.

2015 in Castillon Côtes de Bordeaux:

Spotlight on the 2015 vintage: 2015 in Bordeaux started with an unusually mild spring. May, June and July subsequently were warm and dry, allowing the vines to grow rapidly. An even and consistent véraison occurred in early August. Autumn saw cooler, damp weather, helping build aromatic complexity and power in the grapes before harvest. The highly-anticipated vintage promises to be one for the ages.
