Winemaker Notes

This wine comes from one of the greatest vintages to date, as is evident from the wine's deep violet color and its potential for long aging. The nose is complex and elegant, showing jammy black fruit and a touch of black currant liqueur, aromas which are the signs of a mature harvest. In the mouth the wine comes across as direct and firm thanks to tannins which are still expressive and youthful. Its texture on the palate is dense and attractive; cooked black fruit comes across in its body and finish, with an element of spice and black pepper. This is wine made for pleasure and can age for around five years more without losing its charm. It can accompany red meats cooked rare, pigeon, beef, and feathered game.

RP 88
The Wine Advocate

One of the least expensive wines from Gerard Perse's three Cotes de Castillon estates, this is unquestionably the softest and most immediately accessible. Its dark ruby color is followed by a concoction of ripe, sweet black currant and cherry fruit, incense, spring flowers, and spice. Drink this richly fruity 2005 over the next 4-5 years.

Chateau Sainte Colombe, , France - Bordeaux
Chateau Sainte Colombe
Superstar winemaker Gerard Perse is a force to be reckoned with. In the past 12 years, he has taken several prestigious, although under-performing, Chateaux in medieval Saint Emilion, east of Bordeaux and turned them into absolute dream properties.

He also has acquired two fabulous wine-producing properties in neighboring Cotes de Castillon and made these amazing performers in their own right.

Chateau Sainte-Colombe, with its pretty label depicting a Picassoesque dove, is a superb wine in every way. It is concocted from the two Perse properties Clos Les Lunelles and Clos L'Eglise. The blend is classic Right Bank Bordeaux with Merlot and Cabernet Franc.

Napa Valley

The Napa Valley and Cabernet Sauvignon are so intrinsically linked that it is difficult to discuss one without thinking of the other. Although Cabernet has many important outposts throughout the wine world, nowhere else has it achieved such success (and, at the highest end, commanded such lofty prices) than in Napa. Here, it is responsible for bold, opulent, and dark-fruited wines with grippy tannins and a healthy dose of alcohol. The best examples can age for decades. Each of Napa’s smaller sub-AVAs imparts a different character to Cabernet, such as Rutherford’s famous dust or Stags Leap District's tart cherry flavors.
