Cote de Castillon is located just east of St-Émilion
and south of Fronsac
. The region is Merlot
-based like its surrounding neighbors and produces great value wines. Wines of Castillon may not have the depth and elegance of a Pomerol
, but they are delicious & affordable, allowing consumers to enjoy the right-bank of Bordeaux and a friendly price. These wines also have the additional benefit of being approachable when young, though some producers are creating wines that will age well and improve with a few years in the bottle.
