Puy Saint-front 2016 - Castillon Côtes de Bordeaux

Out of stock

The opinion of the sommelier

Located next to the well-known village of Saint-Émilion, Castillon is the rising appellation in Bordeaux. It benefits from an outstanding terroir and is getting more and more popular thanks to its with attractive price / pleasure ratio. This is of course the case of the Puy Saint-Front 2016 wich shows how great can some Bordeaux wines be for good prices.  



The appellation "Castillon Côtes de Bordeaux" is located on the right bank on the slopes getting down from Saint-Émilion. Coming from the same limestone plateau as Saint-Emilion, the wines of the appellation benefit from a privileged geographical situation with a southern exposure and a difference in altitude of more than 100 meters.

lecepage Grape variety

Cabernet Franc is far from being the most widespread grape variety in the Bordeaux region. However, thanks to its ability to mature early, it is also used further north in the Loire Valley. It brings to the wine notes of crunchy fruit and very nice spicy flavours.

lemillesime Vintage

The excellent weather conditions allowed harvesting at optimal maturity, which stimulated the general interest for the 2016 vintage. There are some examples of great consecutive vintages, such as 1928/29 or 1989/90 and recently 2009/2010. There is now 2015/2016. The wines have a beautiful freshness and show a bright fruit, even more spectacular than in 2015. 

lerecoltant A winemaker, a family

In the 18th century, Baron Alfred de Luze founded Maison A. de Luze & Fils, first specialised in maturing and ageing the wines before selling those. Man of vision and a fine negotiator, Baron De Luze was one of the pioneers in the export of Bordeaux wines in new countries. In addition to its international network, Maison De Luze bought several chateaux in Bordeaux such as Château Paveil, a very old cru from the Margaux region, or Château Malleret in Haut-Médoc.
