With Ondulations, Castel Family Estates opted for innovation, offering a new approach to Bordeaux wines. Ondulations takes inspiration from the inimitable natural contours that characterise the terroir at Château Hourtou in the heart of the Côtes de Bourg appellation. The wine is remarkable for its contemporary profile and smooth texture, which it owes to its maturation in jars and amphora.
Bursting with fruit, this archetypal ‘winemaker’s wine’ is perfect for consumers in search of immediate pleasure, for accessible wines `to drink young. This consumer is more than familiar to Paris wine shop owners, who share the same predilection for freshness, spontaneity and accessibility.
In September 2022, Ondulations was beautifully showcased at a number of iconic wine shops in the cities of Paris and Lyon.
