Chateau Robin Castillon Cotes de Bordeaux 2015

Member Review by duncan 906:

I bought this bottle of wine for £10 from a shop in London's Belgravia [www.majestic.co.uk] Cotes de Castillon is an appellation created in 1936 for red wines only from 9 communes around the village of Castillon on the right bank of the Bordeaux region about 30 miles east of the City of Bordeaux itself close to the more prestigious Saint Emilion appellation.In 2009 it became part of the new Cotes de Bordeaux appellation. My bottle is from a small family concern and consists of 60% merlot,30% cabernet franc and 10% cabernet sauvignon and the wine was aged in oak barrels for 12 months.I started my bottle last night with my supper of roast lamb.There is plenty of a blackcurrant,plum and blueberry style fruit but the tannins are just a little too astringent particularly on the finish.I suspect that this could do with a little more bottle age although it was a good match for the lamb.
