New face of Castillon Cotes
Castillon Cotes, the playground of Bordeaux
explore the possibility of this ancient land
Castillon Cotes de Bordeaux were known as a region that produces less expensive bulk clarets in the past. Gone are these days, and DECO is very proud to bring you two certified biodynamic estate from the area!

Ch. Peyrou starts when Catherine Papon purchased a small plot in Castillon Cotes de Bordeaux in 1989, near the St Emilion border. Catherine is also the owner of Ch. Gaillard, a St Emilion Grand Cru estate. Running the two estates as if they are twins, Catherine has given the same attention and devotion to them - but Ch. Peyrou is more like a playground for exploration, no rules, more possibilities!

Clos Puy Arnaud is located just 2 km from St. Emilion, the land shares the same great terrior for growing Merlot. The estate has a passion for this grape and uses up to 50% in the blend! The wine is aged in Amphora 25%, aiming to restore the long tradition of wine making since Greek time.

Welcome to the playground of Bordeaux.
