2014 Castillon Cotes de Bordeaux [3 liter bag-in-box] (Pillebois, Chateau)
Chateau Pillebois, Castillon Cotes de Bordeaux [3 liter bag-in-box], Bordeaux, France 201475% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon BLACK PLUM, CHOCOLATEY FINESSE & SILKY TANNIN, SUMPTUOUS TOAST Castillon, often thought of as being a kind of fifth satellite of Saint-Emilion (along with Lussac, Montagne, Saint-Georges, and Puisseguin), is home to some of Bordeaux's most extraordinary and reliable values. While Saint-Emilion’s name is not appended here as it is with the other aforementioned regions, this wine speaks volumes (metaphorically much more than 3 liters) to the tremendous quality that’s to be found here – classical and resplendently expressive. Serving Suggestion: Grilled bison burger w/ bacon, leafy greens, blue cheese, & pickled jalapeño relish. Thick, wintry baked potato soup w/ black pepper, smoked mushrooms, cauliflower, & broccoli.
