Chateau Hyot Castillon Cotes de Bordeaux 2014


SKU 04044


As this 100% Cabernet Sauvignon from Château Hyot begins to open to releases pretty aromas of dark cherries, plums, spices and smoke with some earthy characteristics. This possesses a medium to full body and is well balanced showing lovely mix of fruit and acidity. Wonderful flavors of plums, spices and fresh spring florals continue to persist all the way through the finish.

Wine EnthusiastThis is a ripe, fruity wine with its black-currant fruit and balanced sweet tannins. It has a fine elegant texture and juicy acidity. All these elements promise a wine that will be delicious to drink from 2019. The daughters of owners Bernadette Faure and Alain Aubert oversee vineyards, winemaking and marketing.Editors' Choice

Wine SpectatorFrankly toasty, sporting a mocha frame around a core of warmed plum and blackberry confiture notes. Light tobacco and licorice accents fill in on the finish, where the toast still holds sway. This has the fruit. For fans of the style. Best from 2018 through 2024.

James SucklingPlenty of espresso flavors, dark fruit and hints of dried flowers. The palate is medium-to full-bodied with a lovely core of fruit, accessible tannins and a clean, lovely finish. Drink now or hold.
