2020 Chateau D’Aiguilhe, Castillon-Cotes de Bordeaux 6x75cl

DE93
"Violet reflections, great clarity of colour and immediate whoosh of salinity through the redcurrant fruits. Powerful and focused with bright berry flavours, it practically defines the term crunchy... fruit, then softens to show creamier black cherry purée as it relaxes in the glass. Really a very tasty d'Aiguilhe from Vignobles Comtes von Neipperg. Extremely moreish. Harvest September 17 – 28, 30% new oak." 93 pts., Jane Anson, decanter.com

2021 Chateau Montlandrie, Castillon-Cotes de Bordeaux 6x75cl

RP90-92
"Earthy aromas, smoked soil, liquorice, blackcurrant leaf, dark chocolate and violets. This strikes a tone with its vibrancy and energy in the glass, there is such life here, the acidity to the fore... but so well balanced with the crisp fruit and also touches of herbs and dried flowers that give this nuance. I like the upfront, bold nature, really saying; "look at what I've got’" but at the same delivering it so clearly and in balance with that clarity and grip all the way through and a lift - still the juicy strawberry on the finish. Good delivery and persistence with just a touch of green pepper on the finish. 43,000 bottle production. Ageing 50% new oak." 91 pts., Georgina Hindle, decanter.com

2020 Chateau Joanin Becot, Castillon-Cotes de Bordeaux 12x75cl

"Pretty floral nose with violet notes. Hint of boiled sweets/hard candy as well. Lively and fruity, the tannins well honed. Touch of oak from the prise de bois but should settle." 16 pts., James Lawther, jancisrobinson.com

2018 Chateau Montlandrie, Castillon-Cotes de Bordeaux 6x75cl

VM91
A superb wine from the stable of Denis Durantou from the well-regarded Cotes de Castillon. St-Emilion in style from the limestone soil and the grape mix, as well as the winemaking - Denis also owns Chateau l'Eglise-Clinet in nearby Pomerol.

2020 Chateau Montlandrie, Castillon-Cotes de Bordeaux 6x75cl

RP92-94
Here, Castillon- Côtes-de- Bordeaux punches well above its weight, expressing an opulence and concentration of merlot fruit directly from a grade of limestone and clay to rival some of the best... terroir in Saint-Emilion. The 2020 is a blend of 75% merlot, 20% cabernet franc and 5% cabernet sauvignon and aged in 40% new oak for 14 months and represents one of the best combinations of quality and price we’ve seen in the 2020 en primeur campaign.

2018 Chateau D’Aiguilhe, Castillon-Cotes de Bordeaux 12x75cl

VM89-92
"The 2018 d'Aiguilhe is fabulous. Rich and ample to the core, the 2018 bursts from the glass with striking intensity. Super-ripe red and purplish berry fruit, lavender and rose petals are some of the... many nuances that flesh out in the glass. This sumptuous, flamboyant Côtes de Castillon is a real stunner. The blend is 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc." 89-92 pts., Antonio Galloni, www.vinous.com
