Château Côte de Baleau is a respected estate situated in the Saint-Émilion appellation on Bordeaux's Right Bank. Covering approximately 15 hectares, this vineyard is known for producing wines that exemplify the terroir of Saint-Émilion. The vineyards are primarily planted with Merlot, with smaller proportions of Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon, thriving in the limestone-rich soils of the region.

James Suckling: 94-95/100

Lisa Perrotti-Brown - Wine Independent: 88-90/100
The 2023 Cote de Baleau is deep garnet-purple in color. Scents of ripe plums, blackberries, and black olives hop from the glass, followed by playful hints of kirsch and rosebud tea. The medium-bodied palate is tight-knit and refreshing, with lightly chewy tannins and a savory finish. The blend is 95% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc.

Jane Anson: 89/100

Inky rich purple, grilled espresso and coffee bean, black pepper and intense dried fruit notes feel intense, with quick tannic buildup, balanced by salinity and pep. 25% new oak for ageing. Sandy, clay, limestone soils.
