    Winemaker Notes

    This fruit-forward wine displays a fine ruby color, with aromas highlighting small black fruit (black currants and blackberries), and a touch of spice that is both fine and discreet. Elegant, supple tannins on the palate give the wine a tender character. These qualities make this an easy drinking wine which can be appreciated early, although it can easily age for another two to four years. Food matches such as grilled red meats, lightly-spiced charcuterie and poultry make it a true Côtes de Castillon, an appellation on the rise.

    Chateau Sainte Colombe, France
    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.

    Bordeaux, France

    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.
