The cuvée of Château Castaing,
a more confidential production
Since 1876, five generations of winegrowers and coopers have succeeded each other in the heart of the Bonnet vineyard. In 1978, the parents of the current owner Christophe BONNET decided to extend the estate with an additional 10 ha by buying the Castaing property from the Viaud family. This acquisition led to the creation of the CHÂTEAU CASTAING special vintage.
The wine of this property is distinguished by its magnificent dark, almost black Bordeaux colour and its aromatic palette, which combines violet and ripe black berries, enhanced by an elegant woody and mineral touch.
