83pointsChâteau le Sanctuaire 2012 L'Eclipse (Castillon Côtes de Bordeaux)

This lean wine, all acidity and tannins, has a severe character that is not likely to go away. The estate has been handed down from mother to daughter for seven generations and now owned by enologist Marie Laure Latorre. It was named for the Merlot plot planted on 08/11/99, the date of the last total solar eclipse seen in France. Roger Voss
