Merlot & Cabernet Franc

This is the second wine of Château d’Aiguilhe, owned by Count Von Neipperg since 1998. The Château is one of the finest and most beautiful vineyards in the Castillon-Côtes de Bordeaux appellation, on the high hillsides of the right bank of the Dordogne.

Perfumed with intense blackberry and black currant accented by crushed violets and spice. The palate is tense, but elegant with long lasting fine-grained tannins that carry more polish than expected. Combining power and freshness, the wines of Château d’Aiguilhe succeed in expressing the terroir's strong personality, and show very well after 5 years in bottle.

The château dates to the 13th century and today covers 140 hectares, including 90 planted with vines. The vines grow exclusively on the plateau, where they benefit from south-facing sun exposure and excellent natural drainage. A thin layer of rather meagre clay-limestone and clay-silt topsoil overlays a limestone substratum that ensures remarkable water regulation. Combined with the average age of the vines, this terroir is ideal for producing quality wine.
