About the winery

Arriving in Castigno is like stumbling upon the end of the world. The vineyard seems to have been set in an antique garden, with its stone walls and tortured vines reminders of times gone by and of the history of the land.

The Castigno vineyard lives and breathes in a unique micro-climate, between the woods and the rocks, the truffle oaks and the dense garrigue. It is from this wild and preserved nature that the vine draws its concentrated aroma, its uniqueness and its richness.
At times at the mercy of the violent winds and devastating rains, the piercing cold or smouldering heat, at others enjoying the Mediterranean serenity, the vineyard draws its personality from this battle of the elements.

It is a place that is both appeasing and violent, a wild place, an authentic place, dominated by the Château de Castigno, a true relic of the past. Owned by the Order of the Knights of Malta until the French Revolution, the oldest stones of the Castle were erected by the Knights Templar.

It is an original landscape. Paradise regained.

Consumer Reviews - Château Castigno - Secret des Dieux 2008

Caroline Henry  Vinoaddict - from 21 to 75 reviews    Hautvillers  (France)
*** Good 
Elegant wine which will age nicely
Fruit forward nose w a hint of cedar as well, on the palate there is quite a bit of black fruit, a little smokiness and a hint of Cedar again in the finish. Wine was quite closed - would benefit of being decanted or better even aged a couple of years and then decanted:-)
Tasting date : 03 Nov 2011
Maturity : Wait for 2-3 years
Meaning on the maturity : Wine shows well today so can be drunk - especially if decanted... Will pair well w red meat. However I do believe that a few years of cellaring will bring out more complexity and secondary characters.

Faye Cardwell  Vinofreak - from 76 to 150 reviews    Bruxelles  (Belgium)
*** Good 
Nice complex fruity aromas - cherries, plums, fruits of the forrest. Some chocolate in there too. On the palate is warm, velvety, still some green-ness.. could do with a little extra ageing.
