2015 Hyot, Côtes de Castillon

90 points James Suckling: " A round and juicy red with berry and chocolate character, chewy tannins and a flavorful finish. Medium to full body. Needs a year or two to soften. Try in 2020. " (02/2018) Wine Enthusiast: "Located to the west of Castillon-la-Bataille, this vineyard is close in geography and style to Saint-Émilion. It delivers a rich texture from the ripe Merlot as well as generous, warm berry fruits. At the same time, the wine has a light touch of acidity and a crisp aftertaste. Drink this poised wine from 2021. (RV)" (05/2018)
