"The 2022 Clos Lunelles checks in as 80% Merlot and 10% each of Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon brought up in 50% new French oak, with the balance in once-used oak. Classic Castillon black raspberry, graphite, chalky minerality and floral notes all emerge on the nose, and it's medium to full-bodied, with a dense, concentrated mid-palate and ripe tannins. This is great Castillon turned up to 11!"

After a first life in retail marketing, Gérard Perse decided in the 90's to satisfy his passion for wine. His future will be written in Saint-Emilion, his favorite place. He acquired the châteaux Pavie, 1er grand cru classé "A" of Saint-Emilion, Pavie-Decesse, Monbousquet, grands crus classés of Saint-Emilion and then Bellevue-Mondotte, still in Saint-Emilion, and Clos Lunelles in Castillon, Côtes de Bordeaux.
Purchased in 2001, this 9-hectare property is located on a plateau in Saint Colombe, the highest point of the Castillon Côtes de Bordeaux appellation, in the continuation of the limestone plateau of Saint-Emilion, whose characteristics it shares.
At the time of its purchase, the Perse family decided to focus on the Castillon Côtes de Bordeaux appellation, which is unfairly underrated and full of promise. Since then, the estate has benefited from the high standards and expertise of the Perse family and its teams in order to reveal its full potential.
