The Cotes de Castillon appellation takes its name from the pretty town of Castillon-la Bataille, which lies on the north bank of the Dordognee at the eastern gateway to the Bordeaux region. Vineyards lie to the east of St. Emilion.
The 2009 Haut Montpezat is made predominantly from Merlot. Supple with good concentration of fruit, it is soft and very approachable for a young wine. Enjoy over the course of the next 2-3 years. Great Bordeaux for the price. Excellent Value!
