The Cuvée Aubert de La Castille

Understand the grand cuvée 'Aubert de La Castille' red

Why this name?

Aubert is the name of the family that owned the domaine over the course of the nineteenth century. Left without descent, the Aubert  bequeathed the estate to the church in 1922.

This grand cuvée is a tribute to the Aubert, family of silk merchants from Lyon who helped the Domaine to prosper by carefully crafting the wines which have enjoyed regional recognition ever since.

Why this label?

As you can see, the label is a reproduction of the central part of the stained-glass window in the chapel at La Castille (photo on the right).

With this grand cuvée, we wish to demonstrate La Castille's heritage and its identity today.

What about the wine?

Receiving numerous awards every year (medals from Mâcon and Paris wine tasting awards), the grand cuvée 'Aubert de La Castille' is a delicious blend of two grape varietals: Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon, that give a solid structure to the wine. Produced from our best plots, these grapes are meticulously vinified.

The wine is then aged in French oak barrels for at least 12 months, which softens and helps to improve the tannic structure and produce a fine balance with notes of oak, leather, and vanilla. It can be kept easily for 5 years.

This wine perfectly suits stewed meat and game.

Serve between 16°C et 17°C.

Pleasure guaranteed!
