Chateau d'Aiguilhe Cotes de Castillon 2006

Chateau d'Aiguilhe Cotes de Castillon 750ml 2006      
Sku: 1556833

1 day lead-time required to confirm availability Why?

Chateau d'Aiguilhe is a very old holding located on a rocky aiguille (French for "needle" or "peak") in the Cotes de Castillon region. The peak was once used by the Knights Templar as a stronghold with the present chateau dating back to the 13th century.

D'Aiguilhe is owned by Stephan von Neipperg who also owns several Saint-Emilion properties including Château Canon-La-Gaffelière, Clos de l'Oratoire, Chateau Peyreau and La Mondotte.

D'Aiguilhe's vineyards are planted on the upper southern (sun facing) slopes, giving them excellent drainage and thin soils over a limestone base. The wine maker is Jean-Patrick Meyrignac who has a flexible approach for gaining the best from the low yields of each vintage.

Rating
 Wine Advocate 88 points (Feb 2009)
This consistently high quality estates 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.
