“No doubt Henry IV would have appreciated the purple robe of Castelot, the flavor as long as a regal procession, a royal guard of mild spices, vanilla, ripe fruit and new leather, devilishly harmonious and lively on the palate, with rounded tannins and a wonderfully lingering finish... in a few words, the perfect wine for a King !”
Guy Carriere, Thuries Magazine.
