Winemaker Notes

Intense color, ruby reflections, shiny. Black fruit, blackberry, blackcurrant, blueberry aromas with toasted notes. Authenticity of the terroir through the tannic structure and fruitiness of the wine. The nature of the sandy-gravelly soil acts as a flavor enhancer and is found in the minerality of this wine.

Critical Acclaim

JS 90
James Suckling

Attractive plum, iodine and stone aromas follow through to a medium body with creamy and chalky tannins and an attractive berry and chocolate aftertaste. Drink or hold.

Chateau German was the theater of major events during the French Revolution in 1789. The Girondins deputies, Petion, Buzet and Barbaroux, sentenced by the revolutionary regime, took refuge at Chateau German where they died the 8th Messidor Year 11 defending their liberty.

The vines of Chateau German were planted during the 18th century on the terrace of Castillonais, adjoining the land of Saint-Emilion and produce a red wine typical of the appellation Castillon Cotes de Bordeaux.

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.
