Winemaker Notes

"A knockout effort with great fruit, the dense, expressive 2001 reveals plenty of black cherry liqueur intermixed with cassis, vanilla, toast, and mineral. Medium to full-bodied, sweet, and seductive, it should drink well for up to a decade."

Chateau Clos L'Eglise Winery Image
This is the land that gives personality to a vintage and it was the work of Sylviane Garcin-Cathiards, she brings the wine to their full potential. After taking over the property in January 1997, with her experience at Chateau Haut-Bergey in Pessac-Léognan, she redesigned the winery. The soil is clay and gravel with lifts dirt iron, which gives the wine a special character, that is often found in Pomerol. Located on the hillside, most of the vineyard extends southwest of buildings, breaking the famous Pomerol plateau. Its area is 6 hectares. It is composed of 60% Merlot and 40% Cabernet Franc.

Cotes de Castillon Wine

Bordeaux, France

View all products

Though the region is larger than many of its Right Bank neighbors, it is one that consistently produces high quality, well-valued red wines. In fact, Cotes de Castillon can almost be considered a geographical eastern extension of St. Emilion, producing similarly-fashioned reds based on Merlot.

Vineyards in the region’s clay, limestone and sandstone soils produce sturdy red wines. On alluvial terraces, in vineyards closer to the Dordogne River, wines tend to be more supple and fruity. In either case, a great Cotes de Castillon red will be bursting with raspberry, plum and blueberry, have an enticing bouquet of dried flowers and a finish that is plush and opulent.

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.
