Château Carsin 2003, Premières Côtes de Bordeaux | Britt’s Wine of the Month

It was a delight to drink this red wine from Premières Côtes de Bordeaux. It did not cost much but it turned out to have a very good ageing potential. We picked it from our cellar recently and it turned out to be a fantastic wine with a clear Bordeaux style. It was mature yet fresh and vibrant, stylish with a good tannic structure, light and balanced. We really enjoyed it.

Merlot dominates the red wines from Château Carsin, owned by Juha Berglund from Finland.

I would also like to recommend his white wines. His L’Etiquette Grise made from sauvignon blanc and sauvignon gris is magnificent. His red Cadillac Côtes de Bordeaux (the new name of the appellation!) 2012 is 13.50 euros and L’Etiquette Grise 2012 is 13 euros.

Yet another example of the fact that good Bordeaux wines do not have to be expensive. More:
