Domaine du Castel Grand Vin is a blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon Petit Verdot. A great wine to stick into a Bordeaux tasting as a ringer. The finish is fresh and complex, layered with a bright feel and some herbs. The longer this carefully-crafted red was open, the more I liked it. It is approachable young this year, unlike some Big Boys from the distant past, but it has more than enough structure to hold and age well. What that means in practice, we'll see—but it should improve over the next several years and hold well for at least a decade. I'm betting on a lot more, but let's see where we are when we get there.
