Iain has commented the wine Château Fongaban - 2005
****Red wine  |  Castillon Côtes de Bordeaux
Castillon - "Up and Coming" Bordeaux****
Deep young colour, concentrated plummy fruit on the palate, ripe tannins and a long finish with some oak ageing to add complexity.
This independent producer has 8 hectares in Puisseguin St. Emilion and another 35 hectares in the adjacent commune of Cote de Castillon. Many of the top producers in St. Emilion have started to buy land here. The terroir is identical to that of the adjacent St. Emilion vineyards but the land is much less expensive, and the wines correspondingly better value.

Affordable White Burgundy****
Bright golden colour with honey and tropical fruit flavours, good acidity and well balanced with a lingering finish.
The French created the St. Veran appellation in 1971 to differentiate and elevate the chardonnays from seven communes both north and south of Pouilly-Fuisse. The area lies at the extreme south of the Maconnais region of Burgundy, just north of Beaujolais. On the market, the appellation fills a niche between Macon-Villages and Pouilly-Fuisse.

****Red wine  |  Bordeaux Supérieur
A Delicious Bordeaux from a Historic Place****
Ripe berry fruit flavours, good length with a spicy finish - aged in oak barrels for six months to add to its complexity and ready to drink now - from Arnaud de Raignac's winery who keeps his wines honest by sustainable methods and named after the historic fortified Benedictine Abbey of Saint Ferme.The wine is affectionately named 'The Evening Vines' as the blend comes from the vines planted farthest from the Abbey which receive the last light of day and are hence tended to later in the day and into the night.
For travelers Saint Ferme is a village of around 300 inhabitants located on the Dropt River in the Gironde. It's main attraction is the Abbey,a stopover for pilgrims on the route to Compostela.

They gradually built a 83-ha wine estate controlling every step of the process : vinegrowing, harvesting, winemaking and bottling. They produce white, rose and red wines " Domaine du Gouvat " (AOC Bergerac) and " Chateau Laulerie" (AOC Montravel).
