More about this wine from Bordeaux, France
This winery AKA Chateau Lamothe-Castera is located in the tiny village of Roquebrune in the Bordeaux wine region of France. In the 15th century AKA the 1400s, this winery got its start, so they've had a lot of practice producing kick-ass juice. Today, it is sustainably farmed and run by Claire and Renaud Jean. The property is 190 acres and the vineyards are composed of 30-year-old vines Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, and Merlot, which we've got the privilege of sipping on and passing on to you.

It's amazing what several hundreds of years of practice can do and you can taste all that experience and craft in every sip. The juice is delicate, soft, smooth and velvety with a nose marked by the flavor of small ripe red fruits, spices, and of vanilla. The palate is like the softest pillows made of ripe bing cherry dusted with clove and pepper delicately laying on your tongue. You can't have too many bottles of this Bordeaux on hand.
