2020 Clos Lunelles  (Castillon Côtes de Bordeaux) 95
Opaque in color, the wine explodes with notes of flowers, licorice, blackberry, crushed rocks, plum liqueur and espresso. Thick, rich, lusciously textured and intense, the salinity from the deep limestone terroir shines through right from the start through to the opulent, velvety finish. This is the equal of many of the best Saint-Emilion terroirs. But it needs time to come together, so please wait at least 7 or more years before pulling a cork. The wine was made from blending 80% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Cabernet Franc. 94-96 Pts

Plums, black cherry and licorice scents are what you notice first, but it's the luscious, dark, red berries and stone sensations that grab your attention. The finish delivers cocoa, licorice and juicy, black fruits.
