Chateau La Pierrière Castillon Cotes de Bordeaux 2011

Run by Christine & Olivier de Marcillac, the estate has been producing wine since 1607 so there’s lots of heritage and I think Pierrière means quarry which was probably what the original estate stood in or on.

Dark colour, dry, soft and fruity, with a pungent nose, and smooth mouthfeel.

60% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Cabernet Franc
