Château Picoron ‘Petit Picoron’ Castillon Côtes de Bordeaux AOC Merlot 2017

The south facing ridge shielded Château Picoron from the Bordeaux Spring frost which impacted most other wineries, making 2017 a vintage to celebrate!  

An aromatic bouquet of ripe red fruit, vanilla and spices, mouth-watering fresh berries and light tannins.  Perfect balance of strength and freshness.

Only 1400 cases were produced from the rolling clay and limestone hills of Château Picoron.  Aged with a hint of French oak and ready to drink now.

Reviews & Awards

“(…) savoury and a little bit ‘mineral’ and quite enjoyable.”

“Very ripe, black fruits, coffee bean and earth. It’s sweet and up front, but has plenty of sooty tannin, ripe raspberry and a little bit of warmth, some tobacco and earth on a solid finish. Perhaps a bit breathy, but it’s savoury and a little bit ‘mineral’ and quite enjoyable.”
Gary Walsh, The Wine Front,, December 2020

“A lightly tannined, fresh and bright red with currant and light earth character.  Medium body. Easy finish. Drink now.”

James Suckling,, January 2020
