The Wine Advocate

87-89/100

The Wine Advocate - The 2015 Domaine de L'A, the Ctes de Castillon from Stphan Derenoncourt, is a blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc. It has a very concentrated bouquet driven by the very expressive and opulent Merlot, with figgy, date scents tucked in just behind giving it some exoticism. The palate is sweet on the entry with cassis and black cherry notes. There is plenty of sucrosity here, very generous in the mouth, although I would have liked a little more complexity on the finish. Still, this usually represents good value and it is certainly well made.

Cotes de Castillon

Cotes de Castillon

To the east of the St Émilion wine appellation, and on the north bank of the Dordogne, Côtes de Castillon has been the site of considerable interest and investment since the early 2000s. Wine production is significant, yielding over 1.5 million cases per annum and quality is quite variable, ranging from the everyday from the sandy and light gravel soils to imposing, aspirational wines benefiting from considerable investment, and made from the clay and limestone vineyards on higher slopes.

The style of these latter wines is akin to good St Émilion, and the wines use predominantly Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. In common with other regions recognised to produce interesting and good-value wines, several well-known St Émilion proprietors have invested in the appellation over the past decade, among them Gérard Perse of Ch. Pavie, Stephan Von Neipperg of Canon-la-Gaffelière, and consultant Stéphane Derénoncourt.
