Petit Picoron Cotes de Castillon 2015

$ 20.50

The vineyards of Château Picoron sit in the little village of Sainte-Colombe, high on south facing gentle sloping hills at the edge of Saint Emilion. Côtes de Castillon is named for the town of Castillon la Bataille and the battle that brought an end to the Hundred Years War in 1453. These days those battlegrounds across the rolling hillsides and gentle valleys are covered in Castillon’s vines. Castillon wines are well worth searching out and there is plenty of potential here for the wine lover.
