Marks and reviews
A magnificent expression of the superb terroirs of Castillon, on the right bank of Bordeaux, the Chateau d’Aiguilhe 2018 from Castillon-Cotes de Bordeaux is one of the most beautiful references of its appellation.
Grown on great limestone soils, the vintage is made with great care and attention from the talented technical team of the prestigious Chateau Canon La Gaffeliere, a Saint-Emilion Premier Grand Cru Classe.
The product of a very good vintage for the Bordeaux region, the Chateau d'Aiguilhe 2018 is made from a blend of Merlot (80%), supplemented by Cabernet Franc (20%).
At the tasting, the Chateau d'Aiguilhe 2018 presents a dark, deep red color. The aromatic bouquet is intensely expressive, springing from the glass to reveal notes of black fruit, licorice, spice and delicate floral frangrances. On the palate, the vintage displays a superb ripeness of the fruit. The powerful palate offers an elegant material with deliciously polished, silky tannins. The palate continues to develop, with great freshness and energy, thanks to a vibrant acidity. In the end, the finish lingers for a very long time. A great Castillon-Cotes de Bordeaux with a beautiful promise of evolution over time.
