La Cottiere Cuvee Traditionnelle Cotes du Bourg

Great 2015 Bordeaux Vintage
Robert Parker Rated the 2015 Vintage of Bordeaux 95/100 as a whole.

2015 La Cottiere Cuvee Traditionnelle Cotes du Bourg...$21.99
Some very attractive blackberry and blueberry character. Full body, chewy tannins and a fresh finish.
Rated 90-91/100 James Suckling
This wine estate has been owned by the same family since 1698. Brother and sister, Christophe and Isabelle Chéty, are the 13th generation to produce wine here.  In support of Sustainable Agriculture, for the last 25 years, they stopped using chemical sprays for preventive reasons, and now spray only when necessary. They installed a meteorological station, solar panels and started the collection of rain water.  In 2011, the Chéty Family became a member of the first Association in Bordeaux to be ISO certified 14001. A far-reaching Environmental Program includes the reduction of energy use, CO2 emissions and water consumption. We also maintain a high level of safety for our team.
