Appellation : Côtes de Bourg
Vintages : 2018 and 2019
Since 1876, five generations of winegrowers and coopers have succeeded one another within the Bonnet vineyard. In 1978, the parents of the current owner, Christophe Bonnet, decided to extend the estate with an additional 10 hectares by buying the Castaing property from the Viaud family. This acquisition led to the creation of the CHATEAU CASTAING special vintage.
It’s a wine from a more confidential production : only 25 barrels of wine are produced at Castaing. The wine from this property is distinguished by its magnificent dark, almost black burgundy colour and by its aromatic palette, which combines violets and ripe black berries, enhanced by an elegant woodiness and a mineral touch.

the Côtes de Bourg appellation
The Côtes de Bourg extend over about fifteen kilometers along the right bank of the Gironde and the Dordogne. Its terroir is composed of clay-limestone, gravelly and sandy soils. The vines are planted on slopes with varied exposures, which explains the presence of numerous microclimates which influence the character of the wines. The vineyard, with a total area of 4,000 ha, mainly produces red wines (99%) with 3 to 8 years of aging. While Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon are the most common, other grape varieties such as Cabernet Franc and Malbec can be used in the composition of the wines.
