2016 de Pitray, Castillon

SKU #1299161 91 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark A concentrated wine from the Pitray family, who fought in the American Revolution, this has bold tannins and the potential for rich fruit. A powerful wine, it shows plenty of spice as well as ripe black-currant flavors and acidity. (RV) Inner quote mark (2/2019)

90 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark A juicy, flavorful red that is delicious now, offering plum, chocolate and berry aromas and flavors. Medium body, firm tannins and a savory finish. Nice acidity, too. Inner quote mark (1/2021)

88-90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2016 Chateau de Pitray is 100% Cabernet Franc and expresses the variety well with lovely earthy black fruit and a touch of bell pepper. The palate is medium-bodied and apart from the structure, quite Loire-like with that bell pepper note towards the finish. It just finishes a little short, but otherwise, this is a delicious, personality-driven Cabernet Franc. (NM) Inner quote mark (4/2017)

K&L Notes

Chateau de Pitray has a 600-year history under the close watch of the same family. Currently in the care of the Count and Countess de Boigne, the estate and its wines have gained greater exposure of late due to the efforts of Jean de Boigne, the son of the Count and Countess.

This medium-bodied ruby red 100% Cabernet Franc opens with tobacco scents and flavors of ripe red plum. This enjoyable and quaffable Bistro style wine is perfect for washing down light fare or sipping on its own and is clean, fresh, dry and thoroughly enjoyable.
