The third consecutive vintage from Château de Pitray in the Côtes de Castillon, with good depth of fleshy appealing fruit. There will be no 2013 so we have invested in 2012.
The Côtes are home to the unsung heroes of Bordeaux, delivering wines of character with a sense of place at a modest price. Merlot-based, with a significant proportion of cabernet france, this wine was produced for The Society by Jean de Boigne at Châteaux de Pitray in Castillon Côtes de Bordeaux. It is ready for drinking now but will cellar well for a further five to eight years.
What we say:
Tasted like a classic red. Nice. Not overly smooth. Everyday drinking. A safe easy buy.
