Castel Vieilh La Salle Bordeaux , simply exquisite.
A fab red Bordeaux made by blending the fruit of two vintages, 2014 and 2013 — hence the 'NV' or 'non-vintage' designation. The vines are located near the Entre-Deux-Mers region (smack dab between the Right and Left Bank. The vineyards are composed of Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot—a nice balance of some of the most classic varieties in the region. No extra sulfur was added to this wine as a preservative: a genuine winemaking rarity in the region. Great balance between woodsy Cabernet notes and the friendly fruit of Merlot. We wish all Bordeaux tasted this honest.
It is rare to find Bordeaux at this price and with appropriate age to mellow out the tannins. Not only that, but it is Biodynamic without any added sulfur! Will totally please natural wine drinkers and folks looking for a classic Bordeaux.
Mikael Jaumain is a maverick in the region. He’s a total devotee to Ruldoph Steiner. Only ever spraying vines with a tissane of arnica, nettles, and eucalyptus. 0/0
