2018 Clos Les Lunelles  (Castillon Côtes de Bordeaux) 94

Almost opaque in color, the wine is equally dark in color. The nose, with its coffee bean, smoke, licorice, flower and black cherry liqueur is intense. On the palate the wine is equally intense with its full-bodied, rich, powerful layers of ripe blackberries red and blue fruit, dark chocolate and crushed stone character. The most powerful wine of the appellation, give it 5-8 years before pulling a cork. The wine was made from blending 80% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Cabernet Franc. 94 Points

Deep in color, the wine is dense, full-bodied, lush, ripe and powerful. The deep, dense fruits are accompanied by rocks, stones, espresso, anise and oyster shell. The finish is long, with polish and intensity in the chocolate, licorice, infused, dark plums and black cherry endnotes. The wine was made from blending 80% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Cabernet Franc. Give this at least 6-8 years and perhaps longer in the cellar to come together. 93-95 Pts

2008 Clos Les Lunelles  (Castillon Côtes de Bordeaux) 92

08 Clos les Lunelles (Cotes de Castillon) is purplish ruby. Ripe black fruit tinged with spice and licorice are throughout the perfume. Rich and intense, this wine would win a lot of blind tastings if matched against many of the much more expensive St. Emilions. 91-94 Pts

2006 Clos Les Lunelles  (Castillon Côtes de Bordeaux) 90

Spicy black fruits, licorice and jam on the earthy nose which move to soft and sweet, polished, dark red fruits and stone on the palate. The wine is drinking in the right place today with its fresh and vibrant fruits. 90 Points

2005 Clos Les Lunelles  (Castillon Côtes de Bordeaux) 92

Licorice, cocoa, black raspberry, espresso bean and earthy notes open to a round, supple, wine that is already fun to drink. However, it will probably be better after another year or two of bottle age where it should give pleasure for another 5 - 10 years. 92 Points

Still deep in color, an explosion of licorice, espresso, jammy blackberries, cocoa and minerality remind you of a very good St. Emilion wine. From a blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc, this rich, intense, sweet and opulently textured Bordeaux wine has room to improve over the next decade. 92 Points
