Chateau d'Aiguilhe Cotes de Castillon 2006

Chateau d'Aiguilhe Cotes de Castillon 750ml 2006

1 day lead-time required to confirm availability Why?

Chateau d’Aiguilhe is located on hills overlooking the Right Bank of the Dordogne River, on the border between the Cotes de Castillon and Saint-Emilion appellations. This 110 hectare estate has 50 hectares of vines, which are planted exclusively on the upper part of the hills. The vineyard has excellent natural drainage and south-facing sun exposure. The thin layer of clay-limestone and clay-silt topsoil covers a layer of rather meagre soil on a limestone substratum. This terroir provides wonderful hydric regulation all year round and, combined with vines an average of 28 years old, produces outstanding grapes. The minerals in the clay-limestone soil account for a wine of both power and finesse in which the roundness of Merlot (80%) marries beautifully with the concentration and complexity of Cabernet Franc (20%). Although Chateau d’Aiguilhe has good ageing potential, it is nevertheless enjoyable 5 or 6 years after the vintage if decanted beforehand.

 Wine Advocate 88 points (Feb 2009)
This consistently high quality estate’s 2006 exhibits aromas of cedar, black currants, black cherries, loamy soil, and background toasty oak. Medium-bodied and richly fruity with sweet tannin, it should drink well for 5-6 years. Good value.
