Chateau Brehat Castillon Cotes de Bordeaux 2015
Oh, Bordeaux. We never see you enough. You don’t call, you don’t write.
But today, we are dancing, backflipping, handstanding around the warehouse as our container from France arrives, unloading this wine we bought while Zoom tasting with a Bordeaux negociant last June. FINALLY! A double 90-pointer, rich, accessible 2015 vintage, almost 50% OFF...this awesome little bottle is fifteen bucks! Crazy!
Operated by the same family since the 18th century, this wine doesn’t often make to our shores because it’s so dang popular over there. That’s why we do Zoom tastings at 9AM with them to make sure we can lock some up! A colossally overdelivering Bordeaux for the $$ (even at the normal $28 price), this bottle of goodness sings with pure raspberry and red currant fruit, cassis and a bit of that sexy mocha, dark cocoa note, and most importantly it GLIDES, rolls, unfurls onto your tongue all silky-like. Fantastic. Drink with utter abandon at our price -- but we’ve been selling out of everything in hours lately so go quick! OK, party on!
Free ground shipping on 6 or more bottles.
“Wet, wintry earth and foresty aromas with fresh herbs, cassis, chocolate and violets. The palate?s nicely cut with ample tannins that have succulent appeal. Riper through the finish with cassis, chocolate and licorice to close. Best from 2023.”
“Firm tannins along with ripe and juicy berry fruits mark out this rich wine. Aged partially in wood, this blend is dominated by Merlot. Juicy, full of solid tannins, the wine will age for several more years. Drink from 2021.”

About The Producer
In 2010, Béatrice and Jérôme de Monteil decided it was time for a complete change of career and lifestyle and threw themselves wholeheartedly into running Château Haut-Rocher. It has been owned by the family since the 15th century and is located within the original boundaries of the Saint-Emilion wine region, in the village of Saint-Etienne de Lisse. Some people thought they were mad, others believed it was out of ambition, or out of a love of wine or to write another chapter in the property’s history. Whatever the reason, the couple’s adventure continues, guided by their unfailing drive to maximise the quality of their wines.
The property boasts 13 hectares of vines – 8ha in the Saint-Emilion Grand Cru appellation area and 5ha in Castillon Côtes de Bordeaux , respectively producing Château Haut-Rocher and Château Bréhat.
Their commitment is also financial and they have invested significantly in the vineyards and winery. Béatrice and Jérôme de Monteil continue to raise the bar in terms of standards, whilst aiming for organic certification by making a firm commitment to environmental management.
With the support of their team of technicians and consultant winemaker Thomas Duclos, they are realising their ambitions, an achievement underpinned by their authentic and generous Saint-Emilion vineyards.
