Le Castillon côtes de Bordeaux 2020 du domaine vibre à l'unisson de ses malbecs et vieux merlots. Les vins donnent un profil tout aussi conquérant que les 2019. Dans un écrin de fraîcheur, le nez est sanguin, mentholé et à la pointe de graphite.

Description

Clos Louie was created in the year 2003 from a small plot from a family heirloom. This parcel is exceptional, because of its small size of 0.85 hectares, but especially because its vines that are 150 years old date back to the pre-phylloxeric period.

From the beginning of this adventure, Pascal and Sophie Lucin Douteau wanted to go organic to preserve the best of this rare plot.
