Winemaker Notes

Bouquet of blackberry, rose petals & a touch of juniper. Palate is med-bodied with red fruit on the entry: redcurrant, raspberry and a touch of balsamic. Palate builds to a structured, dense finish with good length.

Blend: 65% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Cabernet Franc

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
D 97
Coffee, tobacco and oak on the nose. Juicy and balanced on the palate with pronounced blackcurrant and smoke spice. Good expression of black fruit on the finish.
WW 92
Wilfred Wong of
COMMENTARY: What is the state of Médoc Cru Bourgeois? On the surface, the wines are often excellent values and more affordable than the classifieds 1 through 5. In the case of the 2015 Château Castera, the category looks both competitive and worth the search. TASTING NOTES: This wine is immensely fruity and upfront. Its aromas and flavors of ripe fruit, accents of earth, and just a hint of tannins make it smooth, approachable, and ready for a juicy ribeye. (Tasted: July 27, 2018, San Francisco, CA)

Chateau Castera Winery Video

From the Middle Ages until today, history has evidenced the rich and prestigious past of Castera. Vines have been planted here since the 14th century, making it one of the oldest estates in the Médoc. Located in Saint Germain d’Esteuil, north of Saint Estèphe, the estate has a total area of 185 hectares, of which 63 are planted with vines. Synonymous with quality, Chateau Castera is known and appreciated all over the world. It is one of the standard bearers of the Crus Bourgeois.

One of the most—if not the most—famous red wine regions of the world, the Medoc reaches from the city of Bordeaux northwest along the left bank of the Gironde River almost all the way to the Atlantic. Its vineyards climb along a band of flatlands, sandwiched between the coastal river marshes and the pine forests in the west. The entire region can only claim to be three to eight miles wide (at its widest), but it is about 50 miles long.

While the Medoc encompasses the Haut Medoc, and thus most of the classed-growth villages (Margaux, Moulis, Listrac, St-Julien, Pauillac and St. Estephe) it is really only those wines produced in the Bas-Medoc that use the Medoc appellation name. The ones farther down the river, and on marginally higher ground, are eligible to claim the Haut Medoc appellation, or their village or cru status.

While the region can’t boast a particularly dramatic landscape, impressive chateaux disperse themselves among the magically well-drained gravel soils that define the area. This optimal soil draining capacity is completely necessary and ideal in the Medoc's damp, maritime climate. These gravels also serve well to store heat in cooler years.

One of the world’s most classic and popular styles of red wine, Bordeaux-inspired blends have spread from their homeland in France to nearly every corner of the New World. Typically based on either Cabernet Sauvignon or Merlot and supported by Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot, the best of these are densely hued, fragrant, full of fruit and boast a structure that begs for cellar time. Somm Secret—Blends from Bordeaux are generally earthier compared to those from the New World, which tend to be fruit-dominant.
