Château-de-Laussac Côtes de Castillon 2015
|Region||France, Bordeaux, Cotes de Castillon|
The 2015 Château De Laussac comes from the Michel Rolland team and is a seriously good Cotes de Castillon worth seeking out. Black raspberries, toasted spiced, graphite, and balsam wood nuances all give way to a ripe, fleshy, medium to full-bodied, incredibly delicious beauty that should drink well for upwards of a decade.
A tangy and minerally young red with dark berry character. Full and chewy. Yet polished and focused.
The 2015 de Laussac has not improved much since I last tasted it. Excessive oak has dried out the fruit and left the wine with aggressive tannins. Even so, I see quite a bit of potential if the aging regimen gets sorted out. The vegetal, green streak in this wine is impossible to escape.
