What importer Rosenthal Wine Merchant has to say about this wine...
This parcel is a mere 1/3 of an hectare and is planted to relatively young vines (15 years as of 2011). The vineyard is in the southwestern part of the village on a hillside slope overlooking the town and facing east-southeast. Elevage in barrel for the Les Castets is twelve months with about 25% new oak being used during that period. The wine is particularly rich and fruity perhaps without some of the complexity of the cuvées from parcels situated farther east.

Burgundy has long been the world's most famous wine region. But, underneath all the prestige, this region can be hard to get to know.
While Burgundy offers many great trophies from top producers in well-known villages like Vosne Romanee and Puligny Montrachet, it also offers excellent values to anyone willing to explore beyond the famous names. Our collection– one of the largest in the U.S. – has plenty of both!
